I have met people who are ashamed of the fact they go to therapy once a week or every two weeks. What is therapy all about? It is about healing our wounds.
We all have wounds, some are deeper than others.
Until you heal your wounds from the past are gonna bleed. You can bandage the wounds with drugs, alcohol,food,cigarettes,work,sex,etc. But eventually, it will bleed through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wound, stick your hands in and pull out the core of the pain. Only then you can stop carrying the burden of the past and learn to live just for today.
