> How can a T know where you comming from if she from a different world. I think my T is more gentille. I come from the streets. I dunno if she can understand really?

It’s a good question.

> Has she seen evil? How can a person understand bout it less you seen it?

I think most Ts have seen evil, even if they haven’t seen poverty. And I think we live in a culture where evil and poverty are seen as equivalent. I’d agree that poverty *is* evil (I think no one should live in poverty) but I don’t believe poverty *makes* people evil (I don’t think people are bad because they’re poor). Bad rich people have the capacity to hurt so many more people than bad poor people… And there are plenty of rich people who commit horrible crimes…

>There's no description, doesn't bear thinking of even. So sometimes I wonder. Do they even need to 'get' you? I lost.

I think they can get more than we realise sometimes. They just need to be able to think outside their own experience. And we never know what they’ve been through. At my school (in a poor area) I was sometimes bullied by the other kids. But at my sister-in-law’s school (in a very rich area) she said the teachers grabbed her by the hair and banged her head against the table. My teachers would never have done that.

They don’t always know exactly what we’ve been through. But I think they can still be effective therapists… Just my two cents.
