Mixed Emotions

Have you ever found yourself with any mixed emotions, like excitement and fear at the same time? That’s exactly how I feel as I prepare to go to my first therapy session. There are so many things in my life that I haven’t fully processed. Major traumas like the death of a loved one to minor ones like bullies shoving me around haunt me. These experiences have left me with anger outbursts, feelings of inadequacy, and misplaced guilt that I’ve been carrying around for far too long. And I know I’m not alone in this.

Research shows that unprocessed emotions can lead to physical and mental health problems, including depression and anxiety. In fact, one study found that individuals who had experienced trauma in their lives were more likely to have chronic health conditions. It’s clear that addressing these emotions and traumas is important for our overall well-being.

Despite knowing all of this, I still feel a little scared about going to therapy. I worry if the therapist isn’t able able to help me or will unfairly judge me. But at the same time, I’m also excited about the possibility of finally being able to work through these issues and move forward.

So, I’m taking a deep breath and stepping out of my comfort zone. I know that it won’t be easy, but I’m hopeful that it will be worth it in the end. And I hope that by sharing my experience, others who may be feeling the same way can find the courage to seek the help they need.

I’ll be sure to let you know how the session goes next week. Until then, I’d love to hear from you. What are your mixed emotions? Have you ever been scared to go to therapy? How did you overcome that fear?
