>I think that the self-esteem issue has more to do with seeing that I lived most of my life creating coping strategies to avoid the pain. Like fantasies...and I didn't really face reality.

You don't think that's a bit stern? Don't analysts talk about the *need* for defences?
You would not remember Primal Therapy, I don't imagine it exists now, but the idea was to feel the pain, which you were encouraged to do by screaming.
Just ridiculous (IMO). John Lennon did it, and this (good) song came out of it

The main thing I had to deal with in therapy was acceptance which, as far as I ever manged to grasp, was about my need to control other people.

The Rinpoche said to us we should avoid the things that made us feel bad (or something).....that would turn me into a bloody hermit.

>one thing I still can't fit in my mind is the notion of abandoning wishes

Not only that, you are to avoid comparisons, of anyone, of past and future. Would that stop you thinking?
