I've never trusted a "mental health provider" enough to talk openly with them, even when I felt like I could truly use the help. A couple of the most twisted, power-hungry and hypocritical people I know are among the ranks of professional "mental health providers" and over the years those relationships have shaped how I view the entire field. That said, a couple points on that list have been wonderful, commonsense insights in my personal life.

Thanks tons for your kind personal narrative.

I strongly agree.

The gratitude thing has since had some research look at it. Lots of good life changes correlate with that habit.

Your two points are excellent.

Congrats on your overcoming progress in life.

I hope you have a great weekend with those you love.

Blessing

Thanks for noting a genuine problem in the field.

I've repeatedly told folks--FIND A THERAPIST THAT IS A GREAT MATCH, A GOOD FIT. Keep searching until you find such a person.

Research shows that the best therapists come from two groups:

1. The cream of the crop--those that are simply tops in their studies and practicums.

2. Those who have been really messed up themselves--or at least come from messed up families--and who have overcome such overwhelmingly.

Clearly not all therapists have overcome their own attachment disorders sufficiently to be very safe or effective.

Thanks for your kind reply.

Plenty true.

However, a lot of folks living alone would have no socialization and friendships at all, without the net. Sadly.

There is nothing like having a support network to overcome mental issues

Wonderful thread, there are so many voices reaching out but too much noise to reach out with a helping hand

Yeah, a good support group is priceless. Sometimes, some people have a hard time finding one or cobbling one together. It can take some persistence and courage.

Good point.

The signal to noise ratio can be overwhelming a lot of the time.

Sometimes one has to get alone and refocus on the most extremely important priorities and build back slowly from there.

Step by step . . . what works and makes the most sense in a solid, practical, 'common sense' sort of way.

Thanks for your kind reply.
