Here’s some real talk: we should all probably go to therapy at some point or another in our lives. It’s really helpful to talk to a totally unbiased person whom you don’t know at all to let it out and get some good advice.
If you’ve ever been to therapy or had some kind of counseling, these tweets will look familiar, and they’ll make you chuckle.
If you haven’t…maybe consider going.
1. Let’s switch gears…
my therapist: do you ever think that maybe you're the one who's responsible for your own misery?

My therapist: so did you try those new coping mechanisms I told you about?

4. That should help.

6. You’ll be discussed in the next session.
People don’t seem very moved by my default threat, “my therapist will be hearing about this.”

9. You’re not listening!
my therapist: “take it slow, avoid caffeine, don’t put yourself into situations that you know will make you anxious, eat well and regularly”

Therapist: And what do we do when we’re feeling lonely and needy?
Me: Get offended by strangers’ jokes on the internet?

15. At least twice a week.
