Well I just left the page and erased the paragraph I wrote in response to you..Ugh.

I'm going to make this brief. I do not think everyone needs to through psychodynamic therapy in order to get better. That said, and I've said this somewhere before, there are many people, including mental health professionals, that believe just about everyone, even those that are not struggling with mental illness, would benefit from some form of therapy.

So it looks like you at least agree with me on a few points.

I think you may have either misunderstood me or I did not fully express my views of how the therapeutic process works-so much for brief. I do not think people should dwell on their past and place blame and become bitter-that would be counterproductive. Unfortunately that is the reaction that many have. In therapy, the goal is to better understand how our past may still be having a negative impact-on the way we feels, on our relationships, in the workplace, in the way we behave, etc. Also, through this better understanding, we find a way to have more compassion for ourselves, work through any inner anger we have been carrying, and work through any sadness we have been carrying. Therapy is not easy. Psychodynamic therapy may not be for everyone. Some may prefer CBT or group therapy or some other form.

I understand where you are coming from. It sounds like you are doing what works for you, which I think is great.

Maybe I am being arrogant. I only said that because I was afraid I was not wording my views in a more presentable manner. Text is surely a difficult way to express yourself.

I will agree that I am being fairly opinionated. Just like you strongly believe in what you expressed, I also strongly believe in what I expressed.

Wow, this took much longer than normal-Painful but I felt like I should better explain myself.
