My problems aren’t going to go away. Is it reasonable to talk about them anyway?

Some problems go away, and some problems you have to live with. Therapy is a detailed but non-judgmental talk about what is going on in your life. Sometimes, there is a clear agenda, and sometimes the exploration of therapy has less of a road map. But therapy is a process that allows us to understand patterns in our lives. The knowledge of these patterns allows us to make new choices and have new ways of feeling about ourselves. When this process emerges, even problems we have to live with can feel very different.
