Life can sometimes throw a lot of crap at a person. There are so many areas in our lives where things can go wrong—family, friends, work, home situation, I could go on and on but you get the point. The world is rife with opportunity for disaster, or, at the very least, great confusion.
And when life hands us lemons, we want to make lemonade, but a lot of us don’t seem to have the recipe (this is a metaphor, please don’t explain to me how to to make lemonade).
When times are trying, though, there’s always a place we can turn, provided we have good healthcare, and that’s to our therapists. People who don’t get mad at us for obsessing over something endlessly or making the same mistake over and over again.
They can’t get mad, because it’s their job to listen. So it becomes a place where we can go to get everything off our chests and just let our guards down. It’s an oasis in the desert of life. And it’s also fodder for a lot of jokes.

I love watching my therapist try to pretend he knows who I'm talking about when clearly he's forgotten the whole backstory.

ME: I just feel like “pizza party” should refer to pizzas having a party. Humans having pizza at a party should just be a party with pizza. Does that make sense to you?
THERAPIST: I think we should meet more often

therapist: why don’t you tell people when they hurt you instead of pushing them away without an opportunity to show you if they care enough about you to change their behavior

Therapist: Bottling up negative emotions is bad for your health
Me:[finger guns] That’s why I also bottle up the positive ones
