Twitter user Drivingmemadi, aka Madimoiselle, recently asked her followers to share at least one thing that they've learned in therapy. "If everyone drops one thing they learned in therapy, we can all gain insight from this thread," she wrote. Her tweet saw an overwhelming response as thousands of netizens shared the many valuable insights they'd gained in therapy and explained how it changed their lives for the better. "Therapy is a confidential and private space where you can get help from a professional with anything that bothers you, from your work problems, relationship issues, or other psychological problems such as post-trauma stress, depression, and anxiety," psychotherapist Silva Neves told Bored Panda.

"Those things are actually very common and many people struggle with these things, it doesn't mean they're crazy. Seeing a therapist when you have emotional struggles should be as normal as seeing your doctor when you have a physical problem. But at the moment, our society hasn't normalized therapy yet. It is changing with famous people talking about the benefits of therapy such as Lady Gaga and Prince Harry," the expert added. "I think it is getting better and there is less stigma seeing a therapist now. It depends on your location though, there are still some parts of the world where therapy is still a taboo. Some people think that seeing a therapist means that you're 'crazy,' but this is not actually what therapy is about."
