Oxford Dictionary defines it as “the treatment of mental disorder by psychological rather than medical means.”
Some people think going through psychotherapy is expensive.
Just several days ago, I was in session with a middle-aged woman in deep marital trouble due to her overwhelming debts and sexual infidelities with various men.
When her husband was about to pay her therapy bill, she squirmed and said the price charged was too high.
She thought self healing and wisdom is expensive, she missed seeing that the broken, wasted, and stupid life she’s living is way more expensive.
In fact, a million times more expensive!
Sheesh. The thought sent chills down my spine.
Like her, a lot are 100% psychologically illiterate, even dysfunctional.
You could be a doctor with 3 PhDs behind your name.
You could be a lawyer defending celebrity clients in court.
You could be a CEO of your own multimillion company.
You could be 101 years old.
You could be a wealthy housewife with a bank account the size of a billionaire.
But yet ... you could also be psychologically and emotionally unhealthy.
Without psychotherapy or the healing of your mind, it’s definitely pretty much more expensive for you. You waste much more time, money, and opportunities in your life.
Learn from Jim Rohn who wrote,
“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”
