How to start seeing a therapist
How I did it: I told my mom I needed to start seeing someone, and after she witnessed one of my uninhibited breakdowns, she got right on top of calling around for therapists in my area. So my mom for the therapists, all I had to do was set up an appointment. It was scary the first time, not knowing how to really do the whole process.
Lessons & tips: Think about the product of this ordeal. Going to the therapist unveils some uncomfortable issues from your past. It makes you realize and remember things you'd never considered, and in that helps you realize why you are the way you are.
