7 Signs You Should See a Therapist

7 Signs You Should See a Therapist by Anna Geary-Meyer

When a rainbow speaks you in the face

do not tell it to be silent. These things

are dumb luck on a high horse & one day

your cup will be full of fish again. Good

fish don’t only speak in riddles — some

swim. Only cut the cast when the cast

is very broken. Only buy a boat when you

see the faces on shore & have the hands

to wave. This is the word of the Gourd. A

man-sized beast is hidden in the reeds, but

he is only looking for his watermelon.
