Unhappy Therapy

I've gotten in therapy again, and this time I'm being more upfront. I trust my therapist. We've already outlined concrete goals. It feels very organized, and I feel very lucky. I didn't trust some of my therapists before which is why I left. That's the good part.

The bad part is that a part of me is truly scared of this process. When I don't think about how unhappy I am, my mood is more or less consistent. It's when people start asking me questions about how I feel, and I have to explain how hurt I really am or how upset I am, that I start feeling gradually more depressed.

I'm afraid of confronting my problems. I don't want to lose hope for myself. I don't want to lose the motivation to take care of myself. I still have some hope now. I still make steps to be independent. I make steps to be more emotionally secure. It is still very hard for me, and most days I go through the motions. I cry a lot more, but I have viewed my tears as a blessing. I wasn't able to cry for a long time, and I really needed to. I can release with tears.

I'm still very scared. And I just needed to vent. Discussing my fears with anyone is terrifying. I know I'm giving up a lot of me by doing this. I don't want to be worse off than what I was before. It's overwhelming. My therapist is a lot more direct than the others which is good, because these session aren't free, but I hope I can maintain the emotional control I do have now. It is the best it has been in awhile.

First of all, you just expressed how you're feeling. Did that make matters worse?

Secondly, you can address your concerns about opening up and getting worse with your therapist. I hope this is a trustworthy and helpful one. Be careful.

((((((((((((((20))))))))))))))))

Well, therapist is there for you to confront and overcome your problems. I understand that bad feelings come and go, and that you are able to feel better when you dont think and dont talk about certain stuff, but thats just putting problems under carpet. they will eventually resurface. With therapy you are confronting them, you are fighting. You will feel better.

Best wishes, i hope everything goes the best and you start feeling wonderful!!!

Not yet, but I don't want it to get there. I don't always know I'm about to be depression is coming. If it becomes too much, I will respectfully pull back to reassess. I am trying to be hopeful.

Thank you. I will believe you. I know I have to believe it's possible before I can change.
