I've thought about this a lot and I've also seen other people ponder about this too and then others saying it's okay to take a break- which I do agree w/ as well- but I guess my question is, how do you know when it's okay or maybe even needed to take a break from therapy?? I'm fully supporting therapy, this is more about something I'm trying to figure out for myself. I guess alternatives would be to discuss issues around this in therapy or to slow down in the sessions or w/ the # of sessions... but then when is it okay to justify taking a break altogether? and for how long? I know that sometimes people just aren't ready or can't comitt themselves to the therapy process, so I don't think there's really anything wrong w/ waiting a while or taking a break. but for myself it almost seems more like an option to run away, b/c I know if I stop going then I don't really have to deal w/ the "issues" at hand, which part of me wants. I know that sounds illogical, but I almost think that if I just try really hard I would be okay, I was okay before... and maybe w/ a few changes in my life right now things are bound to get better. right? I'm not saying my therapist isn't good, she is, it's really more about me... reading another post on here made me think- if I'm not using therapy to its full advantage then I'm kind of wasting my time. I know this is again, illogical thinking, but the past week and a half haven't been so bad, maybe I can keep that going. wishful thinking?
