I met with my new therapist in WA. Her location to me couldn’t be more convenient, I arrived early as I was anxious to meet her, to know if we would mesh, if she would get me, if I would like her, etc.
I have had many therapist, she is the first who at first glance looks like a modern hippie, she has purple hair, tattooed, with a slight limp or something like that, she is friendly but gets to the point straight away, my story even though a new one to her, not an unfamiliar issue, dynamic or history.
The day I meet her, I was at a cross point with my relationship with my roommate and wanting/needing desperately to live alone and not have someone invade my space anymore.
The therapist was clear when she told me, she thought I was one of those people who do much better living alone. I couldn’t agree with her more.
I don’t believe she is a good fit for me, that is o.k. too! I had the session I needed when I needed it.
So from today on, I will make it a point to find my own place in the world.
