Don’t you just hate it when you know you should 100% go to therapy but you had one slightly bad experience with therapy when you were like 10 and you’re now completely adverse to even considering therapy lol

      This is the post! I went to a therapist at 14 bc the were a bunch of guys who would sexually touch me every single day at school. My therapist was awful. I recently tried a new therapist four yrs later and he pushed aside every serious topic I tried to bring up so that he could cut my sessions short. I am terrified to go back to a therapist and my mom doesn’t understand why. I am already Terrified of opening up to people, but that what therapists are supposed to help me with

      Honestly I get this. I've had multiple bad experiences and especially with some of the stuff I struggle with patience is a huge thing I need in therapists -- it's daunting but I've found a really good one (finally after 3 failures) that I've been with for about a year and feel like I'm finally making progress. When you get knocked down you just have to get back up again. Remember that your needs are important, if you have another bad experience drop them and try another.

      Honestly I’ve had more than one bad experience but ive also had great experiences. it can be hard to find the right person but if you believe therapy is best for you then see if you can try!

      Yes! I used to be like that until I physically forced myself into online therapy and found myself a therapist that seems kind. I'm still very very wary and have told her about everything that has happened with my experience so I haven't 100% opened up but yeah, it took me years to get myself into therapy because of a bad experience when I was 8 😂

      Idk how you are with reading things but you could try to do some self therapy ? I'm sure there's stuff like that online somewhere
