Do I Need a Psychologist

@Kaori; believes I have serious issues regarding my relationship between me and here in BMGF, and I need to use a psychologist. When I asked my father if I should have one, he responded no because he thinks I shouldn't worry about what the people who disagree with me think and I should ignore them. This made my friend really upset, and she wants me to stop listening to my father, which is a difficult choice to make. @Shiny Shinx; was on the right mind when he wished to see me irl to better understand the issues I'm going through, so maybe she could do the same to have a better understanding with my father, who has taken care of me all these years. Maybe I shouldn't listen to the vocal internet community and worry about the quality of a product, because as it was explained, they're just a minority no one listens to. Besides, I don't think a psychologist will understand anything about Pokemon or the Nostalgia Crtic (just the usual irl issues regarding politics perhaps). But still, should have myself a psychologist, or am I better off being placed in an asylum?

    I don't think you should treat a psychologist like a be all and end all. I just think that if there is a mental conflict you cannot resolve within yourself alone and people around you (like you father) won't seem to give considered and open-minded responses you should try to get the unbiased psychological help you deserve. I don't think people give counselors enough credit and I think too many people spend too much time being conflicted/unhappy when sometimes a little bit of outside perspective and input without any personal judgements/opinions would help. I think you need to build confidence and understand more of how your own mind works, if you can, and a counselor/psychologist is a good place to consider starting with that.

    Well I am fully aware what may be causing my mental conflict. The problem is that I'm not sure which one is the primary cause:

    - The need to be in a long-term relationship with someone precious to me
    - The dream of seeing one of my most suggested characters appear in the next SSB title
    - The concern of negative opinions on the internet destroying the quality of long-running products (Pokemon, Star Wars, Disney, etc.)
    - Paranoia

    And you don't have to live with those making you unhappy. I'm not going to try to make you do something if you don't feel it's what you want, I don't know what else you could want me to tell you by this point. All I know is that even if you don't believe it now (because I didn't myself) an unbiased psychological professional can help you to cope with or even change all of those things and stop them impacting your mental wellbeing so much.

    That is really all I have to say on the matter. Take it or leave it, but please don't ever immediately reject something just because your father says it's not necessary.

    I still think you're playing a character Ghestsis-Dennis, lol.

    This blog only furthers that belief. But I don't mind, you've got fun blog posts (and I see nothing about your personality, real or fake, that needs to be treated)
