Listen

Listen. Can you hear me talking? I wonder what you perceive. I'm not in your head. I'm in my head and it's full of ideas and anxiety. You want me to be okay. That will take time. I have all the time in the world because my mind isn't going anywhere dude. I can help [...]

What do you like about therapy?

Oh boy, what do I like about therapy? Well, I used to think of therapy as a place to dump all my problems, but over time I've learned that it isn't just that. It's a place for me to actively change the way I behave and improve my life. Yeah, I know that sounds cheesy [...]

If I Could

If I could I would tell him exactly how I feel, but I don't. If I could I would feel comfortable with the number 13, but I'm not. If I see it I need to make it 14. If I could I would step on a crack. But I don't because I'm afraid of what [...]
