And How Does That Make You Feel?

Who do you go to when you need to talk?

Many of us rely on friends and family when at our lowest moments, hardest times, or even when we just need some advice, but what if you don’t have anyone in your life to listen? Sadly, many people feel isolated, especially in big cities, and don’t have anyone near and dear to hear them out. Even those of us with the tightest circles of friends and family might not want to share our secrets, reveal our struggles, and place our own burdens on our loved ones.

Psychologists, counselors, and therapists have been around for over a hundred years dedicating their lives to the mental health and well-being of anyone who comes into their office. And just as patients learn ways to achieve happiness and practice mental, physical, and emotional healthfulness, so psychologists learn many truths of life in return.

Mental health professionals of Reddit were asked to share the problems they most commonly hear about from their patients, and this is what they shared.
