My poor blog is about to be my own personal therapy centre. I apologise in advance.
I recently spoke to a therapist who lectured me about the fact that I don’t lean on friends and family when I need support. I promptly asked her why I should do that because I’m really the only one who is ever actually there for me, so why should I set myself up to be disappointed?
It is not logical to me.
People always say, ‘I’m here for you.’
When I actually take the plunge and decide, okay, maybe I should lean on someone else a bit for support ( as I am told to do) I realise that the wall that is ‘there for me’ is an illusion.
What’s the damn point?
No, Miss Therapist, I disagree with you.
Don’t be fooled, folks, it’s each (wo)man for herself in this world.
