Yeah for many of us, just beating the issue to death by talking over and over again is what seems to help. I believe CBT believes in the opposite.. they just say try to move on.. but it doesn't work many times. Especially for these deep emotional issues like loving, caring, how you perceive yourself etc.. for these kind of things just talking talking talking helps. And being heard again and again and again and consoled. That is why I like babble so much these days.
Once I asked my T if there was any way to quickly grow our Emotional IQ like how we can work on puzzle books to increase our logical IQ. I think reading babble really has increased my emotional handling capacity .. a whole lot. This is almost the equivalent of logical puzzles - to read what other people are going through and give help and get help.
