I hope that yours is " A Question on Life" not "A Question on therapy."
There is more to life than being a therapist, Christopher...

I bet you, all people on this list (and for that matter anybody) would do
whatever is possible at that given moment... in that given situation...
given all the gifts of strengths that may become available OR given all the
sudden deficiencies that may show up as fake posturing will vaporize in such

the spell checker but that did not work :-()
All the pushes and pulls of life would be activated... all the gears of life
are at that moment already active, and depending on the 'when and where' the
grease may be gritty between those gears.
What do we know? We may even be surprised at what a non-therapeutic person
And yes, some will walk, some will piss their pants, some will be cool, some
will listen, some will just take the gun, some will say: "When you are done
I've got another job for you... you are 13, hmm? I have this contract..."
This is so very hypothetical this scenario "If... what then..."
I have been pointed a gun at, am still alive, so is that man..., a good
family man now in Bergen Holland.
I have been threatened to be knifed, am still alive, so is that man (a 23

What's the dif...? Do we have to be nutcases for you to lend us an ear?
We are listening to you, we are... and we respond...
Are you perhaps like that 13 year old, quite likely not able to hear... or
doing as though SHE* is
but... trying to manipulate your pants off.
That did happen to me (although she was quite a bit older and the attempts
were pretty serious)... I am not talking hypothetical here.
So I learn and learn and learn... and remain lovingly...
