Going to therapy is actually not much about talking about your problems, it’s about digging up your past.
My past is filled with many repressed stories. There’s a good chance I don’t even remember them, because my brain has completely blocked them out.
Digging out these stories might be one of the most important things I’ll ever do. Because it helps me understand who I am as a person today, my opinions, and how I make decisions.
It helps me get a better understanding of my anxiety, my fears. “Why am I so worried about X?” It’s all from my past.
If I don’t dig these things out, they will linger for the rest of my life. If I can come to terms with them, I can be free.
