My Depression Lifted After Therapy

When I lost my job, I thought it would be easy to get another one. I was not accounting for the fact that others had lost their jobs too because of the company’s unexpected bankruptcy. I had to move back in with my parents, and I had a bit of a meltdown over all of it. I was confused why I could not find even a temp job, and I started to doubt my ability in just about every area. My mom is a smart woman, and she saw this. She showed me, which is a website for a local therapist.

My mom told me that she wanted me to see the therapist, and she would take care of all the costs involved. I thought that this was just because I was feeling low about not working, but again, my mom is a smart woman. She could see beneath that and noticed that I was at the beginning of a depression. She did not want me to suffer with this, and she definitely did not want me to go deeper into a depression since I was not doing much with my life. I was basically just staying in my room and coming out for meals.

I had no problem going to this female therapist because I wanted to feel better. I was feeling so low about myself that I did not care at all about divulging stuff that would normally be embarrassing for someone to say out loud. I knew that there was a confidentiality in place, and that let me really let loose on everything bothering me. The amazing thing was that my job was just a small part of why I was feeling this way. She was able to get to the root cause of unhappiness, and she gave me some great coping techniques. I feel much better now, and I am actually starting school soon to get the job that I really want to have.
