I have been to about 4 therapy sessions now and am starting to wonder how it really, honestly helps a person. The only thing I'm finding out is that we will talk about a situation that I'm not happy with in my life and he will give me tips on how to go about taking steps in changing that and he will give me something like a goal to work on or something to come back and tell him about. I don't feel like I am honestly thinking differently or changing, I just feel obligated to do what he says so I don't have to come back next week and tell him "I didn't do what you wanted me to". For instance, I told him how I am bored all the time, but I like to do physical activities sometimes for fun. He asked me what I could do and I told him that I could go running everyday or something. So he gave me the goal of going running everyday and to come back and tell him about it. Am I going to do it? Hell, I don't know. I might and I might not. How does therapy help you guys who go?
