>You don't think that's a bit stern? Don't analysts talk about the *need* for defences?

My analyst is trying to encourage me to avoid fantasizing too much and try to really get in touch with people. I'm still not sure why I avoid social settings. I do have some friends, though.

Maybe it has to do with fear of rejection. Or fear of exposing some weakness. It's not clear to me yet.

About Primal Therapy, I've heard of it because I read that some Tears for Fears songs were inspired by Primal Therapy. I really like their songs, and I think the lyrics are very meaningful.

>Can't you just find people who like you as you are?

I guess I'm still trying to change myself, so maybe (as you said) I have to work on acceptance first. Maybe then things will get easier?

Thank you

Ralph
