Hello ladies!
I am in serious need of some advice. I\’ve kinda been through a lot and I have quite a bit of a story which includes depression, self injury, improper medicine usage, etc. needless to say it\’s been very difficult! A lot of this started In high school but now I\’m at a wonderful Christian university that God led me to! However, I brought my problems with me and they have caused me some trouble. I was desperate so I sought help and now I see a counselor/therapist on a weekly basis when I\’m at school. It\’s been great but I\’ve mostly been focusing on the depression aspect of it all. Just recently my other issues (mainly SI) have been coming back into my life and I\’m so distressed about it! It\’s coming about because I have a lot of problems and changes I\’m going through. I really want to reach out and talk to him about this but I\’m so scared! And also ashamed and embarrassed. I\’m also scared I\’ll get in trouble if I full on admit to this. I really want help though because I\’m afraid of what this could turn into and what it\’s become. I want to get better so badly!

Any suggestions/advice/encouragement? Can anyone relate? I just want to let it out! I know God brought me to this specific school and counselor. I\’m just afraid of confessing to it! It\’s hard to find the words that will express how I feel without bursting into tears.

Thanks for reading! ❤️❤️ sorry it\’s so long!

Therapy is hard cause most of the time you just don’t want to talk or you feel like you can’t find the words to say, but it’s really important to just let it all out. If you want help, you’ve got to not be afraid to get it not matter what. I would say pray to God and ask him for the words to say before you go next time. The fact that you have a counselor that you like is a good first step (my counselor that my mom made me go to was awful and I really didn’t like her). This will make it much easier to open up. You can do it 🙂 You said it yourself, God brought you here and maybe this is a big reason why, to get you the help that you’ve been wanting and needing. Trust that he knows what he’s doing and you are in good hands 🙂 Good luck

Don’t be afraid! You won’t get in trouble. And you know what? Even if you feel afraid, speak anyway. Therapists help people like you frequently, so he won’t be shocked.

I’m so proud of you for going to therapy! I’m sure it’s difficult but in the long run it will be so helpful. <3 Pray before each session that God will guide you in what to say, then just don't worry about what he thinks and just talk. You'll be fine.
