Iâ€™ve gone to different counselors on and off for a few years now. Iâ€™ve tried many times to open up and let the person help me, but I always end the sessions short of any progress because it just doesnâ€™t seem to help. I have trust issues to begin with and Iâ€™m not open to sharing my story with just anyone. I always want to tell the counselor the absolute truth, no matter how harsh it is, but I always become too afraid. I donâ€™t like the idea of someone being paid to care about me. I know that they chose their job for a reason and they have a passion for helping people, but I always feel so uncomfortable telling this complete stranger my problems. There have been times that I have sat through counseling holding back tears because I didnâ€™t want to tell this person how much I hated myself, I didnâ€™t want this stranger to know my secrets. I always feel a ton of pressure, like I have 45 minutes to tell this person everything Iâ€™m feeling. How do you break through that?
