Lessons From Therapy

AD | Hello my lovelies, happy Monday, I really hope that you have all had a wonderful start to your week! I've been going to therapy now for three years, it started when I was receiving hate crime by an old neighbour and I was feeling really low and needed someone to talk to about what was happening. I was really unsure about it at first because I didn't want to go and spill my heart out to some stranger who may judge me or put me on medication, or tell me I was depressed etc, but I'm so glad that I decided to go along and I wanted to share with you some of the best things I have learnt from therapy so far...

x | Humans are not ships, you cannot save them from sinking if they don't want to be rescued from the floods. Stop swimming across oceans for someone who wouldn't jump in a puddle for you.

x | Remember; you can start over anytime. Your day is not ruined. Your world is not over. Take a deep breath and start over.

x | Your attitude matters and your mindset shape your experiences.

x | You can be the kindest person in the world, and yet some people still won't like you.

x | Happiness is a feeling, not a goal, it can never be constant and that's okay. But happiness is a priority and there are always so many reasons to be happy.

x | Question your thoughts sometimes, not everything you're thinking is true.

x | If you feel a bad mood or negative thought coming on, put on a happy song and sing along.

x | Six months from now you can be in a completely different space, mentally, spiritually, physically and financially. Keep working and believing in yourself.

x | People in therapy are often in therapy to deal with people in their lives who refuse to go to therapy.

And now, you'll find me somewhere between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity, and focusing on my goals. I'd love to know your views and thoughts so please let me know by getting in touch with me on one of my social media pages? I'm sending you all so much love for a wonderful day x

With love, Alisha Valerie. x
