Answer 1
May, 2021

In the 1st year of the university, I went to a free psychologist from the psychological center at the same university. There were no tests and no brain repositioning. I just talked about myself, my life for an hour, and the psychologist only made sure that I did not go too far into memories and stopped me in places that were significant in her opinion. She asked me why I acted in a certain way or what I think about past events. I did not walk for long, but even this time was enough to understand that my and others' perceptions are different and more often than not, what I think about people's attitude to me is wrong. In general, it is better not to try to wander through the nooks of your mind, but just tell a close and understanding person about the problem. And you will torment yourself less and figure it out faster)

Once I was crying for half a day, it came to hysteria. I called the free psychological center on emotions (I thought - that's it, well, I can't handle it myself). Surprisingly, I was told to come the same day, as it was lucky, the person refused the session.

The psychologist was kind and sweet. She asked what the problem was, at first I was confused, not knowing where to start, and then I got carried away: I was already talking about everything, everything that had accumulated. Along the way, she sometimes asked me questions, sometimes those whose purpose was to make me think about something myself and find a solution without guidance or understand something for myself. Despite the fact that I spoke out (this is very, very important! So I appeal to everyone who reads this - learn to be a good listener and remember that sometimes a person does not need your advice, but your ability to listen sympathetically), I still have slight disappointment from the session. I wanted more participation, I wanted to hear what specific steps I need to take. I don't know, maybe I needed to go to a friend, not a psychologist, and my expectations were not met initially.
