I am a big believer in therapy. For whatever reason, but there is often this negative connotation attached to it or a sense of that people not in therapy are above the ones who are. My therapist & I spoke of this because it's been coming up a lot in a way that has been hurtful to me. When really, it's been there for years. There's this uneven balance of how it's approached. People who need therapy must be really messed up, they must have baggage upon issues upon problems that need someone else to fix. On the other end, someone not in therapy looking down, then it must mean you are far superior and have everything together, perfect.
I do not want to get in too deep here, but if you aren't in therapy and you want to negate someone who is, but then also seek their advice, I'm fairly certain you are not superior. We are all human. This also means that someone actively in therapy isn't entirely "messed up". They are just able to accept that an objective opinion may benefit them, their life. and their well-being. I do not understand why there even needs to be a comparison or acknowledgment at all.
For those of you who think you are better, I hope you are. And for those of you willing to take a deeper look within, I commend and applaud you. We are all in this fight together, it's a process.
