Sometimes, I sit and wonder why some people recover and others do not.
Some people recoil from their pain as if it were a hot stove. Does the pain burn some people more than others? I have some patients who have remained stuck, running away from issues they know must be faced in order to be well, backing away over and over, every time we come near. These people will choose behaviors over the pain and will cancel appointments or take a break from therapy if necessary. Why? If this describes you, would you write about it?
