Violet, I am so so sorry you are feeling this badly.

Better minds than mine have tried to answer the question you ask, but I agree with Poet that we each have our own answer.

About treating yout T horribly, I not sure about that. We go into therapy because we have things we need to work through, and some of those things are kind of ugly. Our therapists urge us to regress, to project feelings onto them, to use therapy as the arena in which to play out our feelings. You really could let go of your guilt about doing this. I did everything except shout at mine that he's a short intellectual who looks like Woody Allen and needs a hair piece.

Violet, lovely sweet scented flower, the point may be in trying to *find* the point. Or there may be no point.

I don't think happiness exists. I think there are moments of happiness, moments of bliss if we're lucky, and preiods of contentment. I think there are quiet times, and hard times, and sad times, and good times. There are times that the thing I enjoy most is my coffee in the morning, and I go to bed early just so I am that much closer to drinking it.

Enjoying life? To me that just means that when those little joys, like the morning coffee, or the first violets of the year, or the two year old in my garden yanking flowers for her mother, fall into my path, I see them and I think, hey, there's one o' them there joys.

That said, when I am sad, the joys can feel like sorrows.

I know you have to end therapy with this therapist, but - and please forgive me - I can't remember why. Would you feel like telling me?
