I force crises. I think most of us do. We are used to being in crisis - it is familiar. It means that we don't have the energy to work on new things (and that feels safer).

Talk to your new therapist about this... You may very well be on to something.

(I keep trying to tell myself that as long as I'm doing these things unconsciously that I don't need to be mortified that I'm doing them. The point of therapy (at least a major point of therapy for me) is to become aware that we ARE making these unconscious decisions, to bring the unconscious thinking into consciousness. Because we can change our conscious actions. So if they become conscious we can change them. But it is kind of embarassing to find that we are doing such hurtful things to ourselves!!!)
