Therapy can be a real lifesaver when a person is struggling with their mental health.
It’s wonderful to have an objective person to help you learn why you’re making mistakes and how you can change your behavior to be a healthier person. But because of all the weird acceptance and validation issues so many of us have, therapy can also be weird and funny. After all, laughter is still the best medicine.
Well, laughter and exercise. So maybe read these while you’re on the elliptical machine and get more bang for your (free) buck.

My therapist: <laughs at a joke I said>
Me (to myself): This is great. I’m going to get a good grade in therapy, something that is both normal to want and possible to achieve,

therapist: why don’t you tell people when they hurt you instead of pushing them away without an opportunity to show you if they care enough about you to change their behavior
