Good afternoon and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.
My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston area.
I am sorry to hear you are struggling in your relationships...feeling like others are harsh with you in their criticism and judgement. I'm curious if you are simply questioning the company you keep or if you find this across the board? Also, I do believe we dictate how people treat us and I'm wondering what you do/say when others judge you or put you down in some way? Do you stand up for yourself? Ignore the comment? How do you react overall?
I am so sad to hear you are feeling a bit "less than" in many areas of your life. I imagine you are a harsh critic of yourself as well and perhaps are more generous with your opinion of others than yourself? I have no doubt you are intelligent, kind, beautiful and all the same things you use to describe others. It does sound like you are struggling with your own imagine of yourself and overall self-esteem issues.
Please forgive all of the questions. I want to make sure I truly understand how you feel before providing more direction. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Just wanted to check back and see how you are doing? Please feel free to reach out with your questions.
Is there anything else I can do to assist you further? I want to ensure you are pleased with my service. I also gently request you provide a star rating for me. Of course, we can continue to talk after the rating is provided.
Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
