I've been thinking about maybe speaking to a counsellor. I haven't had anything traumatic happen in my past, I don't have particularly strained relationships with family members or anything - I just think it might be good to just speak to someone, because I know there's stuff going on in my noggin that I'd like to speak to someone impartial about, because I think some of these things are affecting other areas of my life. I'd like to see if I can unpack some of what's going on and maybe reach some sort of resolution.

I don't know. Is this silly? Is this self-indulgent? Is speaking to someone to say "there's nothing wrong with my life but I just want to talk about my relationship with x issue with someone who hasn't heard me bang on about it for years" a waste of my time - and theirs?

I really don't know. But it's something I've wondered about for a long time, off and on, and I wonder if this might resolve some of these not-issues for me.
