I keep thinking about why people do therapy and related stuff. Mind you, I don't know much about that - I mean, I took psychology courses since I trained as a teacher, but that's about it. And here traditionally people just did not do it, because it's like admitting you're not normal - except that this changes, but in strange ways - like I know someone who said that he wouldn't date a person who did not have therapy.

The way I see it, there can be two things that therapy is for: one, to analyze what's going on with you/why you are the way you are, and two, to help you deal with the things in life you find problematic. And I know that for myself I absolutely do not want the first - some things I know already, and some things I think are better left alone. And I am not sure that most therapy-like things are set up for the second. But probably they wouldn't be meant to - people are different enough that any repair kit should be assembled by a person concerned, from many places.

Also, I know that I react badly to probing questions/being pushed on issues I haven't thought through by myself - it feels like an assault, and I start defending myself, and end up pushing myself in quite a different corner.

(this is all brought up by various occasions that made me think about what people consider psychological problems and how they deal with it)
