I made the hardest move I’ve ever made this past week. Quitting on my therapist.
I hate leaving people and I do not like the feeling of letting people down. But I just couldn’t help but to feel that we were not the greatest fit.
I appreciate my therapist and his effort for sure, but even as time passed on – I just did not feel like I had the best fit with him as a therapist and client.
As a psych researcher myself, I read countless articles on how medication and psychotherapy conducted together brings out the bets results and I understand that. However, how do I help myself if I feel that I just need some time to figure things out myself without having a therapist?
After being in therapy since August 2016, I almost feel that I never gave myself a time to reflect on my own mental health journey. It was rather having a therapist doing all the hard thinking FOR me.
But I do know I should eventually get back to therapy as I am still trying to find my “tools” for my mental illness.
