The Most Impactful Things Therapists Told People

Therapists are full of great advice, but there’s always that piece of advice that sticks out from the others and is just so impactful you remember it for the rest of your life. The “Buzzfeed Community” is sharing what theirs was and who knows, it may be impactful to you, too.

  • "My therapist told me to visualize my 5-year-old self and tell her the stuff I say to my present self every day. Only then would I realize how harsh I was being, and how I was stunting my own emotional growth."
  • "'You can't rationalize with an irrational person/argument/situation.'"
  • "'So, basically, you weren't wanted as a child.' I'd never heard anyone cut to the core like that."
  • “'It’s just a thought. It’s not the truth.' It’s helped me a lot with anxiety and panic attacks."
  • "'You put a premium on logic. If you spend your whole life expecting others to do the same, you're in for a lifetime of hurt and misunderstanding.'"
  • “'You’re not gonna solve anything at 3 a.m. If you can solve it, solve it right away, and if you can’t, it’s not gonna get fixed in the middle of the night anyway.' A small one, but it did have a huge impact on the quality of my sleep."
  • "She asked me, 'You keep waiting for the shoe to drop or for a ball in the sky to fall on you. What if there is no ball?'"
