In our previous post, Benefits To Going To Therapy – Part One, we discussed the benefits of going to therapy. In our last blog, we discussed how therapy can help you overcome your symptoms and how you can sort through your past feelings. Therapy can be scary if you aren’t comfortable talking to people about your past, but in the long run, it will help you work through issues that you don’t want to face with the assistance of a trusted individual. Therapy is about working through your past and exercising the demons from your life. If you’ve gone through a traumatic experience, it can help talking to someone. Learn more about cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy, and other types of therapeutic approaches to allow you to work through your own inner demons.

Repression is when you suppress a thought or something that happened in your subconscious. For instance, if you were at war or were raped, you would have a tendency to repress it so you don’t have to deal with it. Repression can occur with emotions, thoughts, or memories. It can be easier to repress something, but eventually, it will come to the surface and begin to haunt you. When you go to therapy you’re able to express your feelings about any traumatic events that happened to you and by talking about certain events, feelings, or thoughts you’ll be able to work through what happened in a healthy manner and eliminate any chance of letting feelings fester.
Do you tend to have bad days that seem never ending? Do you tend to have a negative attitude about everything? Are you tired of thinking the way you do? When you go to therapy you can benefit from gaining a whole new perspective on your life. It helps to talk to someone and have another person offer advice on a situation that seems blurry to you. Negativity can drag us down and if you don’t process negativity, then you can begin to look at the world through a lens of assumptions, passive aggressive behavior, and anger. When you go to therapy, you can begin to get a new perspective on everyday situations, events, and people you’re surrounded by.
