No, you don’t need a therapist. You’re not crazy and there’s nothing really wrong with you. But you’re not happy are you? Can you quit what you want to quit and start what you want to start?
There are lots of different types of therapy out there. And there are even more “non-therapy” techniques designed to help you change the way you think, act, or feel.
Yes, children are annoying. They whine, they cry, they break stuff, they hassle you. You can’t get rid of them. They treat you like you’re their slave and they don’t appreciate anything you do.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from people that a therapy relationship is not a real relationship. It’s a pretty universal assumption. To be honest, during a large part of my own therapy, I thought the same thing.
