I started my therapy session a few weeks ago with a “my life’s okay but I’m really frustrated and irritated.” These emotions are the reason I sought therapy in the first place so my therapist wasn’t surprised. We talked a bit about the situation and the he, unbeknownst to me, started the therapeutic part of his session:
I was talking to my therapist yesterday. He asked me if there was anything in particular that made me feel a certain mood I had been experiencing lately. It didn’t take me long to answer him. I told him I hate social media. Hate it with a passion. We got to talking and ultimately came to the conclusion that “the grass is always greener” and FOMO – the fear of missing out played a heavier role in society than one could ever think.
