What Should I Do

  December 7th, 2017 by My Name Is

So, my experiences with therapy are pretty bad. My personality is straight forward and I can’t STAND overly pitting someone and faking being extremely happy and energetic. That’s what all my therapists were like. They’d be super preppy and hyper, be over dramatically pitiful and say everything with this tone like I’m a little kid. And when my parents said this new therapist is straight forward and perfect for me, I believed them. But he’s literally the exact same way, not being straight forward, not addressing the problem and looking for a solution. He laughed a little too hard when I cracked jokes, smiled obnoxiously throughout, acted like he felt so sorry for me when I told him about my panic attack I had, and got way too personal way too fast for me. And worst of all, I knew him before I found out he was my therapist. He’s my brother’s best friend’s DAD.

I need someone straight forward. Doesn’t sugar coat anything, tells me when I’m being stupid without trying to not hurt my feelings, and doesn’t fake being welcoming. I want someone to just be themselves and who I enjoy taking to, who takes time to ask very personal questions. You know what I mean? It was just my first day so I don’t know if I should just stick with it. Are all therapists like this? I need someone to tell me what I need to do.
