Hi Wizzer, a friend will listen and give advice but sometimes the advice is quite subjective and not always the right advice. A therapist is trained in these matters. There are different types of therapy. There is "insight therapy" which will help you to see "patterns" in your life. They listen a lot and ask you how you feel about
that and should ask leading questions to help you to come to the answers that are within you. There is also "cognitive therapy" which will help you to change the way you think and talk to yourself. They will make you look at what you just said and suggest a different way of thinking about
it and phrasing it. It certainly can't hurt and might do you a world of good so give it a try. Hopefully others will be here to post soon.
