Stop Judging People For Seeing A Therapist
Posted on September 25, 2013
Why is it socially acceptable to hire a personal trainer to help you PHYSICALLY?
Why is it socially acceptable to hire a FINANCIAL advisor?
Why is it socially acceptable to hire teachers and mentors to help you learn and grow MENTALLY?
Why is it socially acceptable to attend yoga classes, talk to your pastor, or any other SPIRITUAL advising?
Yet, we’re ashamed to tell people we’re seeing a counselor, psychologist, therapist, or whatever else you want to call someone who helps you EMOTIONALLY?
It’s time for society to realize that it’s ok if you don’t always know how to deal with your emotions. Look at the infographic from BusinessInsider.com below for an idea of how much stress we’ve added to our lives in the last 100 years. Some changes are for the greater good, but still cause stress on us as individuals that didn’t exist (or at least wasn’t as burdensome) 100 years ago.
Don’t judge anyone for seeking advice on how to deal with our rapidly changing world.
