I'm generally a very private person when it comes to things that bother me/my issues. I've always found it difficult to open up to anyone about these sort of things. For those of you who have seen a therapist, how did you get over that hurdle of opening up. Seeing a therapist terrifies me a little. I'm not sure if I'd be able to talk openly. Since seeing a therapist costs money, I don't want to waste my time seeing one if I can't get to the heart of the matter of what is bothering me. How did you open up? Did it get easier when you started to? Any advice for me? I feel like I'm getting to a point where I really need to talk to someone.
