Time for me to get on my soapbox a bit and talk about therapy.

During one of my later years of college, I started having some major anxiety and depression. I was feeling overwhelmed with school and with the fact that I hadn't gotten into the program I had wanted to so it led to a bit of an existential crisis. But I avoided getting help or even telling anyone because I thought I just needed to suck it up and power through it. Fortunately, my wife and went to a play on campus that focused on mental health and was centered on a girl going to therapy. At some point during that play, I realized I needed help.

I talked to my wife, who was incredibly supportive and loving. I went to a counselor and got things worked out. I'm much happier than I was before I started talking about it.

I know that therapy doesn't work for everyone, but I also think that too many people are ashamed to go get help when it would do them a lot of good. Don't be afraid to get help if you need it.
