Therapy's Dark Side

dark therapist

I want to be happier. That shouldn’t be so hard. However, for every issue I “fix” in my head, five more rear their ugly heads. Every layer peeled away reveals a deeper chunk of my emotional iceberg.

The biggest problem is that the solution to my problems lie within. The world is not to blame for my inability to deal with it. It’s my responses that need correcting, not the world or its situations. That sucks. I want someone else to blame.

So how do I find out how to fix me? Is therapy the answer? Will it help? Will the solutions to my problems hurt other people? Am I fixable? Do I really wanted to be fixed? Will I lose the me I’ve known for so long?
