This doesn’t just mean your love life. Tell your therapist about all your relationships, whether that’s your partner, your family, or your friends.
Do you feel like you have support at home? Do you feel like you have other people to share your feelings with, or do you have difficulty opening up with others too, not just your therapist?
Relationships are important to your mental health, and they play an important role in affecting your mood and feelings on a day-to-day basis.
So, if you’ve been avoiding your mom’s calls, even though you love her, let your therapist know, and maybe you two can explore why you’re avoiding her.
Even if you feel like you have good relationships, talking about them might help you realize the things that are working in your life.
No one has therapy all figured out, even the therapist. If you’re finding it difficult to open up at first, don’t worry. It might take some time for you to really get in the swing of it. But with time, you should start to feel yourself becoming more comfortable and opening up more.
