Is There a Way to Feel Better Fast?
When you feel bad you don’t want to wait to feel better so it’s no wonder people are turning to this new alternative to traditional therapy.
I understand how horrible feeling bad can be. In fact, I felt so depressed and alone at one point in my life that I even attempted suicide, a few times. (This story isn’t for those who are suicidal though. If you are suicidal, you need to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255).
I only share this deeply personal part of my life with you so that you know you are not alone. I mean, how embarrassing is failing multiple times at suicide? I really don’t like sharing that.
But just as it’s important for me to share this about my life with you, it’s also important for you to share those parts of your life that are making you feel bad with someone trained in how to help you feel better.
Traditional Therapy Has Its Drawbacks Though
Beginning traditional therapy requires that you first get up the nerve to set up an appointment to meet your new therapist, then get up the nerve to actually go to that therapist.
Then you have to share intimate details about your life with someone face to face.
For a lot of people who suffer from depression or similar issues, that’s a big ask. In fact, that alone can keep them from getting the help they need.
Then there’s the more obvious drawbacks to traditional therapy, such as scheduling conflicts, traffic, etc. Your pain doesn’t always show itself just on Tuesdays at 2 pm.
Sometimes you need an interaction with a therapist between scheduled sessions.
So Is There Something Better Out There?
There is no question that emotions can be expressed online. In fact, that’s how many relationships begin these days. So doesn’t it just make sense that therapy makes that leap as well?
Of course it does. And that’s why it’s becoming so incredibly popular right now. Not only because of it’s amazing convenience but because it’s cheaper and more approachable than traditional therapy.
In fact, it’s generally done on a subscription basis which is really cool for a couple of reasons.
- You can tailor your plan to your specific needs.
- It cost less because you can do a lot of the work on your own time with the resources they provide. That way your therapist is up to speed with where you are before you start and your session will be more productive.
How Can I Get Started With This?
As with any therapy, it begins with the commitment to do the work it takes to feel better. If you make a financial commitment to getting better by signing up for a plan, you’re more likely to follow through and benefit from it.
Then you’ll be able to get started on a happier you. It may seem a bit daunting at first but that’s why you are getting help from professional, licensed therapists.
Online-Therapy has an amazing program with all kinds of useful tools to help you get started. They have worksheets, journals and even yoga videos to help you become a happier you.
They even have a quick, “How are you doing”, test you can take to get started.
Modern Problems Simply Require Modern Solutions
Some of the reasons we’re not as happy in society have to do with having the world at our fingertips.
We are constantly bombarded with negative information these days. On top of that, we have a positive persona on social media we have to keep up or face judgment and ridicule.
If you don’t deal with your issues, these things can be overwhelming. Trust me, you are not alone.
Make the commitment today to become part of the solution and then share this with others that they might find happiness too.
