  • Does it help to talk about your life's problems with a therapist? What can a therapist really do?

    personally, no. but it depends on the person. i highly recommend trying therapy for about two months with an open mind and then deciding whether or not it is right for you. for some, it is truly the way to a happier life so please please just try. i hope you get the help that you need!
