Know yourself, your story and what to bring up. Ready for putting things into practice.
I've went there at my lowest without having any idea of those things. I've also spent a long time not asking for help, so not evening knowing how to do that properly or what it entails. It seems simple but when at our lowest and losing our mind, without having stability of any sort, doing those things can be very difficult.
I would say get ready for what you want to heal and ask for information (I was also really bad at asking questions, or anything from others. What I needed was companionship but felt like I didn't find it. What I did find was having bits of enjoyment from my hobbies and daily living)

thank you. I would agree doing those things seems simple but is actually difficult.
