Let's Hear it For Self-Righteousness
Wow, I read over the writings I have deposited on this site. I feel like a silly, self-righteous bitch.
I've been seething in negativity, and I wonder why shitty things are happening in my life.
I have clients ranging from young women in their twenties to men who feel old in their fifties.
I saw a client today as part of the duet as his marriage, which is how I always see them. I had asked him, what do you want to feel, what do you want to think when the two of you are in your 80s and rocking on the porch. Now you cynics of therapy might be thinking to yourselves, "Ah, the miracle question."
I was taught how to do that, ask the miracle question, in grad school.
The miracle question has nothing to do with anything, it is fantasy. So I go from self righteous to arrogant.
On a scale of 1-10 how much do I like myself right now? Not much. 3 I think.
