Do you think that there might be something wrong, or that something needs to change? You might have known this for a very long time, years even, but the prospect of speaking to someone seems impossible.
To seek help is difficult. It is hard to move therapy up to the top of the priority list (if it even makes the cut), and it is harder when we believe that other people are more important than our own needs. That may be true, that may reflect your values, but you are over-simplifying things.
In his book 'I Don't Want To Talk About It' Terence Real claims that "many of the men I treat would never tough out the process of therapy for their own sake. But men have been trained to be good soldiers, and many are willing to experience the pain...for the sake of their children".
You were once a child. Perhaps what is troubling you has something to do with how you were raised, or what you experienced as a youngster. You can choose to carry on, try to ignore it, but you run the risk of making things worse.
As Terrence Real puts it: "Do the work... Face this pain now, or pass it on to your children, just as it was passed on to you".
