To put a lighter tone on it - when I was really at my wits end and went for councelling to a therapist - I had hardly any money and was physically very ill but figured if I could get the head together the body might follow along!! Well, I went for a few weeks and the walk did me good!! the therapist was I think saving for a holiday and kept nodding off after asking me questions - she would close her eyes and pretend to listen - Well, even at that time I laughed within myself and just never went back. I really did think to myself - I've enough of councelling to last me for a life time - but went to my doctor who was a wise ol guy and he looked after me physically and sent me to one who was awake - it helped me at the time and since then I have learnt so much - councelling has its place in certain times of our life and depending on where or what you are at the time. It was good for me but now I'm just learning from experience and books and things like this site which makes me appreciate how good my life is now.

Both times I have heard the phrase was when I suggested that me and a woman try couple's counseling because of pain in our relationship.

The first woman was a batterer who ended up abducteing my child.

The second was my fiancee who was cheating on me.

Oh, I am sorry, Worried_Dad. But maybe it's a good tool for you to add to your kit, one of the things that can help you identify someone who isn't a healthy partner for you. In this context, the phrase conveys the message "I knew I needed help, I sought it, and I gave up when I didn't get fixed after a set period of time."

So what are you going to do now?

WD,

Yea, it's probably safe to say that anyone who says that is likely in need of more counseling. lol

Sounds like you've made some crumby choices in women, as did it. Self esteem has a lot to do with making those poor decisions. Settling, thinking 'that's the best it's going to get' type of BS.

Your thots?

Counseling won't change her mind or make her honest.

I've said many times that I'm done with counseling because I hit a hard place with it, etc.

I'm stepping back into couseling today. I'm shopping for a good fit for me. I've seen someone who was too soft mannered for me and someone that was too brusque. I did make some progress but I have more to do.

I really hope that I can make some changes.
