Getting so many friends is a daunting task for me. I am not that type of person that is very friendly. I remember when I was in grade school, I always want to play alone and be alone. I usually cry when some other kids come close and play with me. Yeah, I am a loner type person. I prefer to be alone and function well when I am alone. It may sound crazy but, I feel that I can do things on myself.
When I was already in high school, when there is a group work or a partner work that is being assigned to us by our teacher, it is very nerve racking to me. I do not know why I behave this way and I myself cannot understand why I am built this way.
I reach out to my mother and ask for help. She asks me to undergo counseling sessions. Well it was new to me, but I gave in. I am nervous of what will be the result will be or how will I react to the questions or the therapy itself.
My mother research online on the nearest and the best counseling center in our place Tulsa Oklahoma. We are so lucky that we found Meister Counseling founded by Michael Meister. We got a schedule for a preliminary interview. Michael was a great counselor he understood the problem and help me a lot to overcome my problem. He gave me exercises that help me overcome my being a loner. He explained to me that it is alright to connect to people and talk to them.
With time and the guidance of my great counselor, I slowly opened myself and connect to other people. I am surprised with and proud of myself it has been 5 months now. I have friends of my own that I can talk to and submit my problems. I am thankful that I have submit myself for counseling. It really helped me a lot with my problems.
