Therapy: The liberator

Therapy is not about relieving suffering, it's about repairing one's relationship to reality.
The strong find peace in that and bless me, others, distraught by the loss of their illusions, walk away and curse me.

I thank them both, especially the latter because they teach me to be patient and creative. Illusions are there to protect fragile and traumatized minds; they should only be taken down when the soul is liberated from the shackles of pain and shame. Illusions, like the butterfly's cocoon, fall away when her wings are strong enough for her to fly.
