Therapy often does seem and is just talking-you will never get immediate results. It took me years to develop mistaken perceptions and knee jerk reactions and it can take years to sort those out.
Since I grew up in a alcoholic environment, trust is a very big issue. My therapist asked me to complete,"Love equals..... Still after 45 years of life and a lot of therapy, I still complete the sentence the same. "Love equals pain."
Like Scott Peck said-life is difficult. Some of my issues will never go away but I will continue to try.
Anyway, if you have special issues(most of us do)try working with someone who has been there
and is not there anymore. They can see thru BS
really well. Just an opinion.
