I really dont have good feelingabout my therapy. The only person in the world that I have trusted is my counselor/therapist. And now i've lost trust in them too. I feel so empty, so hopeless. Its actually almost indescribable how I feel about life right now. I've never been so confused before.
 
I just feel like my therapist gives me a hard time sometimes, and a lot of time I cant be completely honest in therapy because I'm too scared. I really just don't think that I'm going to change. I'm always going to be depressed and anxious and sad, it will never go away. I feel like it's a waste. I can't change myself, and no one else can. SO what am i to do?
 
I also feel like a lot of time my therapist thinks that i'm just making excuses for things which it may sounds that way, but i'm really honestly not. i have a past with lieing, so even when im telling someone the truth it sound slike im lieing, because i just fear that they wont believe me that im telling the truth. HOw do you gain trust back in someone? cause i feel ocmpletely alone now.

I am sorry  things are still rough for you.  Do you feel you could build a trust relationship with this therapist and ask outright if your therapist thinks your not being truthful as that it how it feels to you.

Good Luck,

Kitt

I understand how frustrating it might be to communicate with a person who doesnt seem to trust u.I think you must be looking for another therapist if u r not comfortable with him. There r many out there who can help u .

I also think that maybe you do need another therapist. It is hard to get better when you don't feel comfortable with the one that you are with. Maybe that would be an option for you.

I am happy that you feel safe enough to open up with us. It makes me feel so good that you trust us. I know that you will get through this. And seriously think about getting another therapist.

Good Morning BTE
 
I hope you are feeling a bit better.  Therapy is tough and as Karen said you have the right to find a new one that is more compatible with you.  I did that once.
Gentle Hugs
