  • I’ve once had a real bestie but because of misunderstanding problems, I lost him/her. It was really hard back in the day to overcome it myself because no one was there for me and I wasn’t and still not good at dealing with those breaking up things. Even though time has passed and we don’t touch anymore, sometimes I do miss my ex-bestie and want him/her back. But everytime i think of him/her, I’m afraid to face my feelings from deep inside of me because I once experienced falling down when I tried to face myself(not actually falling, but feeling like that). So, I just decided to ignore what’s happened to me and tried to maintain my normal life. I’m not sure this is the right healthy way to solve my problem. Any tips would be so appreciated for me.

I think people in their 20s to 30s have this problem and I’m pretty sure you’ve seen some patients having the same issues as mine. How can I deal with it in a good way?
  • I’ve been thinking about going to a therapist for a while now.
