I’m watching Sex and the City for entertainment while I write and play games. Today, actually as it often does for a show made in the 90s that seems a bit out-of-date sometimes (but oddly seems very in touch other times), it came with an interesting idea: Therapy is self-indulgent.
To me, this seems like a “no duh”, also very important. That’s the point of it! But, also, it can be very crucial. It was not until I went to therapy for dealing with grief and depression when Rainne died that I realized how very important it was. One of the most important pieces of self-indulgence that I ever participated in. Crucial for many, for at least some points in their lives. Definitely crucial for me at that point.
I’m going back to therapy again this time – not because I need it to move on like I did the last time, but because I need it to keep my priorities straight and get my life back in a straight-ish path (insert some joke about queerness and not even my life being straight). Plus, I’m not sure how much more of my issues my partners can take. So, that’s a good reason, if nothing else.
