As I was leaving the grocery store yesterday I followed two retired women. I heard one woman say to the other, “Everyone should have a therapist.” I almost laughed out loud because they are probably right.
We should all have someone we can talk openly and reflect with. I find some friends are better at talking about raising a child and family life, while others are better at talking about hopes, dreams, problems.
So what is it that makes a good therapist friend? Are you ‘that’ person for someone else?
