Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
It used to be that the common cultural perception of counseling was that those who went to counseling were weak, had issues, or just couldn't cope. But, that stigma is disappearing, and I am so thankful for how the conversation is changing and making it safe for individuals to come forward about their pain and begin to find hope and healing. The truth is that everyone struggles at some point. As many as 40% of people end up with an emotional or mental illness at some point in their lives. LIKE PHYSICAL WOUNDS, EMOTIONAL WOUNDS AND ILLNESSES CAN HEAL. The first step in finding healing is talking to someone. Opening up and connecting with others is the beginning of healing. It doesn't mean you are weak, it means you are brave and want to heal. I respect that.
