It has been a year since I started therapy. It was the hardest, best thing I've ever done for myself.
If you think you might benefit from talking to somebody, I used Betterhelp and, after a couple tries, I found a therapist who I work well with and I recommend it. Talking to someone once a week has helped me more than I imagined it would.
Stay well and thanks for following the journey.

In the second panel, Elephant pats girl on the head and says, "I'm proud of you." Girl and Heart stand side by side and Heart responds, "Thx."]
