The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 30-year-old female asked:
Relationship pattern: We learn a lot about relationships from the models that our parents provide for us. Good, bad, or neutral, we can find ourselves repeating relationship patterns that we observe growing up. The answer to your question is likely more complicated than an "absent father" though that would be an important area to explore. A good therapist can help you sort through, and fix, these difficult patterns.
A 32-year-old male asked:
Know thyself: I would recommend it. That you are curious about yourself and want to be a better person makes me think you might benefit from some work with a good psychologist. Could you function well in life without seeing one? Perhaps. But you may find that working with a therapist brings you even more mental wellness.
A 40-year-old member asked:
1 step at a time: First, what's causing it? That can be difficult to answer. Conditions like depression and anxiety can impact motivation and the ability to get things done. Procrastination can also be caused by psychological conflicts and personality characteristics. While there is no "quick fix" here are some tips. 1. Make a list 2. Start small 3. Do something today that will help you tomorrow 4. Keep doing #3
