When I Couldn’t Talk to Anyone

“Therapy has been a life changing experience for me. When I look back to where I was before I started, I feel lucky to have had the chance to work on myself in the way that my therapist has helped me to. When I couldn’t talk to anyone in my life, in that room I have talked about everything: my childhood, my sadness, my fear, my shame and my insecurities. At times it was difficult to talk and sometimes I didn’t even want to. My therapist was gentle at those times and helped me take that difficult step. I talked about my choices and how I kept making a mess of my life. All along I had someone to listen while I learned to trust myself and others. I learned to build healthy relationships after I had spent my life putting myself in dangerous and damaging relationships, putting myself through one trauma after the other, all of which affected me very much. Now I can say I know how to take care of myself, and I know that I don’t have to live my life sad, hurt or hiding. I used to escape, using many different things. Now I don’t need to.”
