Therapy actually left me uplifted

I know the positive feeling won’t last. Getting encouragement in life apparently makes a big difference in me, and it makes me realize that it’s something I haven’t gotten much of in my life. Of course, my family never encouraged me in anything (unless they were encouraging me to do something they wanted). And I haven’t had friends like that either. The lack of positive encouragement in my life led me a down a lot of wrong paths in my life (how and why is another story). I’ve always had this desire sitting in the back of my mind to have someone to encourage me. And when I’m around people who don’t encourage me or who discourage me, I get this feeling like, I wish they’d encourage me. I don’t know why I’d need someone else to encourage me. Why don’t I just encourage myself? Maybe because we’ve already given up and we need someone else to say, “No, you’re wrong. Why don’t you think more about this? There might be an option there.”

Sick of being so sick I can't live life. But it's been so long like this that I accept it. Illness is life. I have no other life.
