Yeah it’s really hard. Especially because no one views it as a bad thing to talk about. They think they’re only helping people, but it makes people like us spiral deeper into doubt.
If its a psychology class, get out of it or ride it out with the sensibility that A) youre not prepared for all it entails and b) its mostly bullshit youll never need unless you become a clinician
When you do want to become a clinician :) :) :) no but I think it’ll be okay
It’s some readings i have to do for my english class since im a creative writing major :/
I got my degree in creative writing and understand where you’re coming from. Everything is “the human condition, character motivation, text, subtext, character history, foreshadowing, meaning, hidden meaning, psychology, intent, anticipation, sex, drugs and transgression.” Listen. Absorb but dont internalize. Write your stories. Re-write them. Do the readings but dont read into everything. Work hard but dont let everything affect you. Writing is more about the work than how it makes you feel. Reading is about how it makes you think and feel. Dont overthink or over feel. Youre not alone. And everything is not about sex. Its about relationships and ideas.
