Today we are going to take a closer look at therapists - who they are and what they do. A therapist is someone who helps you improve your overall mental health, but can also help you sort through problematic behaviors or personal relationships, work on self-esteem and confidence, and even move forward from trauma experiences.
Think of a therapist as your gardening assistant.
Sometimes our gardens are just a little too overwhelming for us to manage on our own. It's nice to have a someone to help sort through things, remind us to water our flowers, and help us pull our weeds.
Also, don't underestimate the power of talking to a great listener!
Therapy helps us do and conquer lots of different things, but arguable one of the more important outcomes is to have the ability to communicate about how you are feeling and why. Opening up and being vulnerable is really difficult no matter what age you are! So all you gardeners out there working with a "Gardening Assistant" - be proud! Your ability to ask for help and work on your mental health shows so much growth and emotional maturity - because let's be honest, each and every one of us could benefit from having someone to help us sort through the pots and planters cluttering up our sheds, pull the weeds that crowd our gardens, and appreciate the flowers we are given every day.
Thank you to all of the wonderful, helpful therapists out there - you truly are spreading seeds of honest & open communication! Some of the best seeds out there, if you ask us 😉.
