Funny Little Things
I saw my therapist for the last time today. I expected to cry, but I only felt numb. I expect that the rougher emotions will come in time. I gave her a card with my words of gratitude, and she gave me a journal so that I can keep writing words.
Over four years, how many words did we exchange? Too many to count. How many nervous breakdowns did she see me through? How many times did I cry? Far fewer than if I hadn’t had her. Words weren’t enough to describe how she helped me, even if I had the next ten years.
Oh, there they are. Funny little things, tears. You never really know when they’re going to show up.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Therapy can be extremely helpful, and I'm always for the people who benefit from it. And tears are never a bad thing. Shedding a few here and there can be quite therapeutic.

Therapy is great for those who need it and can get it. Definitely worthwhile.

I appreciate how the title implies something potentially humorous, but by the end has become a reference to the opposite.
