    Personally, I think the point of therapy is to change your way of thinking to a more positive one, just my opinion though. Others may disagree

    I'm hoping therapy will teach me to accept the things in my past that still affect how I think so negatively today. To accept them, to mourn what was taken from me and to lay the ghosts to rest.

    Hopefully I will also learn better coping strategies for when things go wrong in future.

    Validate your feelings and your thought stream. Learning different perspectives and being more positive about yourself.

    What about you @Innocent Forever

    I think the point of therapy is to let your thoughts and emotions in a safe and healthy environment and to understand why you feel like the way you do and to adjust to positive thinking instead of the constant negatives. Just my 2 cents :)

    It is the process to make someone to motivate and to stay positive.
