COFFEE ANYONE?? QUESTIONS FOR THIS SHRINK???
I often get asked how it is that I socialize....do I analyze everyone in the coffee shop? Do I diagnose people?? Do I judge people?......The answer is:
It depends....99% of the time I just want to socialize in a social setting! I am just a person like you...I just want to socialize with you......Being a shrink can be hard...accepting people's pain, knowing the dark side of humanity, nurturing people through unfairness and even injustice....
Do I want to do that during my 'down time?' Frankly no...It engenders too much responsiblity on my part and although I am authentic in my therapist role it requires limits....I don't want those limits when I am in a social setting and I don't want those responsibilities either....I just want to be me.
