Therapy has helped me develop healthier ways of dealing with stress and coping with challenging situations. It has taught me, to process my thoughts, emotions, and actions, so I can better understand myself, my situation, and respond accordingly. My bad ways of coping, often self-destructive, have been reduced. It has also empowered me. All this doesn’t mean everything will be easier moving forward, but it does give me peace of mind knowing I can count on myself somehow.
