My advice is, don't spend money on therapy.

I wonder about therapy. I haven't had it.

However, on one hand, to be able to trust someone when someone goes through things (if the therapist is plain and says to the person, "Well, you are a narcissist, let me help you........." could be good for some people, lol). However, I doubt a therapist will or can be plain speaking, or they will lose their client, or, it would take ten years to get to that point, I don't even know if therapists give proper advice? (We all have Doctor Phil! :lol: :lol: ).

Now, we have this culture of self absorbed people who say that their needs always come first, missing the point that there are steps in between that, that other people's needs should be taken into account, one should look at how their behaviour impacts others, plus, they should nurture themselves.

The therapists I have met (sooooooo generally speaking) are screwed up in my opinion (I am not educated in such a subject) lol.

What I think is the answer?

Find someone you can trust who is grounded AND listen to music, lol LOL LOL (music will do until one does).

There, I have therapised, lol LOL LOL

Many men would take the death-sentence without a whimper
to escape the life-sentence which fate carries in her other hand.

"Compassion is a gift we can give to others that doesn't cost a thing.

We give from a place of love.

Pay it forward as often as you can, and your life will never be the same.

Don't give with an expectation of what you will get in return.

Love gives freely."

Quote of the Day - 16th August:

It's ungrateful to be wishing you were doing
something else at the moment you are living.
You haven't lived in the moment that you are
really living, you are wishing you were somewhere else.

Thank you, Dearest, enjoying the beautiful water in the little waterfall and stream, I think that the little things add up to big, wonderful things, all matter so much, as do you.
