People Are Sharing The Best Things They Learned In Therapy

@towriteloveonherarms
"And she told me that happy people aren't continuously happy. Happy people just experience less anxious and depressed days, and that definition helped me reach 'happy.'"

"The best thing a therapist ever told me is that society doesn’t need to be the one to set my schedule...There’s no correct mold to fit, just find whatever works best for me."
