7 Harsh Truths From A Therapist

You May Not Like The Truth

  1. If you were taught life is fair, you have been LIED to. Adjust your thinking (or be miserable forever).

  2. NO ONE is perfect; everyone has made a bad decision or a mistake.

  3. Change doesn’t happen over night. Sometimes it takes longer than we would like.

  4. If you think everyone else is ALWAYS the problem, you may be part of the problem.

  5. There is not always a silver lining.

  6. Suffering is not a contest. There is no prize for who has had the worst life or who has been through the most.

  7. You can ask for what you need. Whether others can give this to you or are willing to is up to them. It is out of your control.

About Kennedy

I have been working in the field of addiction and mental health for almost 10 years. I am currently a therapist in private practice based out of Etobicoke and I treat clients throughout Ontario.   

My practice currently focuses on attachment, couples and working with people of all ages who have experienced trauma. As a therapist, I am trained to help people with all kinds of issues stress, depression, anxiety, and grief for example.

Anything written in my blog posts is my own thoughts. They are intended to offer information that may be interesting or useful for contemplation.


Nothing I have written is intended to be a substitute for seeking professional help.
