Are we onto something?

wow, I think we're onto something here but I can't quite put my finger on it yet. This is totally fascinating to me. You guys (smeegle and crushedout) are trying to recreate what you had as children and I'm trying to recreate what I never had. Is that it? If it is, my T tells me that my efforts to recreate will always fall short--I will never be able to do that. What I have to do is find other ways to make myself whole and I think I'm starting to do it more.

Does that mean you guys can't recreate it either? But you have concrete examples to follow--does that make it easier or harder, or is that any different really? But our depression or the way we go through this process seems very similar.

Also, crushedout--parents probably can be too loving, but I would only define "too loving" as being enablers or protecting you so much that you didn't learn to make mistakes and find your own ways to recover. Am I wrong or right?

You guys are great.
