“Remember that you are not alone in this; seeking help is a sign of strength and courage. Allow yourself to feel your emotions and know that it is okay to not be okay. Embrace this opportunity for growth and self-discovery. Therapy offers a safe space to explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences without judgment.
