THERAPY & COUNSELING
INTO THERAPY IS A VERY SMART THING TO DO
IF YOU WANT THE MOST OUT OF LIFE
PROBLEMS ARE IN THE WAY
Some people are pretty uncomfortable about getting counseling help. We wish they
were not so hesitant to get help, because it is really smart to come for counseling
or psychotherapy. The healthier you are, the more you will enjoy life and accomplish
those things that are most important to you.
We have both been in psychotherapy. My wife and I had the sense to get an outside

people want to blame someone else for their problems. While it may be true that
others contribute to the bad situation, they still have to successfully deal with
the predicament. Waiting for the one whom they are blaming to make life better
for them is an exercise in futility.
Let me say it again, smart people get help. We see it all the time. The healthiest
partner in a marriage is often the one who seeks help. So, why not be in the smarter
crowd and get help? Do something about those things that trouble you. Life is
too short to wait.
