Are We Ready for this Life

I think I have figured out a good portion of why I dislike therapy and since that is all I have been able to think about today I thought I would share.

I hate it, it’s cold and indulgent, it’s selfish where I am only taking from the other person and not giving anything back, I would liken it to a mentor teaching me however the process lacks admiration which leaves me cold, the conversation is always once sided, power is imbalanced, I feel like I am airing out my dirty laundry in front of a stranger, I am emotionally invested… in essence I think therapy rips apart the nature of a true relationship.

In fact to take it a step further I think that we as humans do many things that are inhuman. We sit behind a desk all day under florescent lights behind computer desks, we sit in cars and in traffic instead of using our own two feet to walk, we spend hours watching tv and eat our meals out of cardboard boxes and cans.

In essence in the past 200 years our lives, meaning human lives, have changed dramatically. The change I think is too fast, too abrupt. Our bodies and brains have not had a chance to catch up to our lifestyles and some of us are cracking. Maybe that is where a good majority of our unhappiness stems from.

Then again maybe I have been under the hot sun too much.

It's true what you're saying but its important to examine oneself too.
