20 positive affirmations that people learned in therapy

Mental health is a critical part of human functionality. Without proper mental health, well, the burden and stress affects are daily life. It’s not so easy finding a good therapist. And more so an affordable one.

The beauty of social media is that it allows people, who would never have known each other, to interact and share experiences. Sometimes it can be negative and even traumatic. But sometimes it can be positive and wholesome.
