Relationships are not easy, because people are complicated, by nature. The more complex the person, the more intricate the relationship can be for all involved parties. If you throw in childhood issues that have impacted adult lives, multiply the complicated nature of the relationships. When I say relationships, I am talking about familial, platonic, and romantic connections.
Therapy is a great way to unravel the complexities that you participated in without fully realizing it, and this has a way of helping you understand past relationship challenges and failures. It is essential to gain comprehension around past choices if you want to alter your path, and eventually move toward building stronger, healthier relationships. Ultimately that’s what we all should want. Sometimes that will involve taking a deeper dive into who you’ve been, who you are now, and who you want to be in the future.
I’ve always taken pride in my perception of my ability to self analyze. Although I still take pride in that, I realize that my ability to self analyze was never deep enough. Therapy has been essential in helping with the tools needed to dig deeper. It is, often, very uncomfortable.
“Everything is NOT Transactional.” and “People should not be objectified.” However, “relationships could be view instead, as having a reason, season, and or lifetime.” These phrases hit hard, hit deep and quite frankly took me by surprise a bit.
I never thought that I viewed relationships as transactional or that I treated the people involved in an objectified manner. However, it could be that I have, unknowingly. It is definitely something that I must think about. If that has been the case, unraveling these behaviors will have to be done and it will be an ongoing process. Learning to build deeper, more meaningful relationships will take a lot more unboxing on my part. It will probably be a long and very involved process.
Through continued weekly sessions, I look forward to continuing to change, make progress with, and build momentum toward solutions in making me into a more well-rounded individual.
WHEW, the unboxing of this session was tough but that, my friend, is what therapy is all about.
