The school offers this free resource to students suffering under the pressures of college and I am proud to say that today I took advantage of it.
Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of daily life. I feel I am constantly working and achieving nothing, drowning under the commotion of the hundreds of things I have to accomplish. I wanted an outsider’s perspective and advice on how to deal with the stress and anxiety I’ve been recently facing. I support therapy entirely and believe it can be a great resource.
It’s not for everybody though, and I must admit that I personally found the session to be unhelpful and uncomfortable. Why are you still staring at me? I started to wonder. I have absolutely nothing left to say. Yet she just kept looking at me, waiting for me to say more.
I went hoping to hear some helpful advice, and left repulsed by the sound of my own voice. I am still stressed about my schoolwork and I also might never talk again. But again, different things work for different people.
