Don't get me wrong, my therapist is good but some things I disagree with her on. First, I'm a college student. I'm an art major. I'm major in art, not because I am interested in art but because I can't do math and art has the least amount of math requirements of any major or my university. I recently told my therapist about me not wanting to be an art major and it was a sham. She asked what I would really like to be, I said I have always wanted to be a computer engineer, but I couldn't do the math. She said I could do the math and I just have a poor perception of myself, she tried to convince me to take a few courses in computer science next semester. Now I am all for the power of positive thinking, but this is dangerous advice. If I took a CS class and failed -and fail I would - well, I would feel like a failure and it would add more fuel to the fire. Some people are not as intelligent as others, that's just life. I have struggled with math all through school and have failed no matter how hard I tried. Maybe it is because I was dropped on my head as a baby, who knows just bad genetics probably. But my opinion is, not everyone can do what they put their mind to, that is total bunk. I appreciate my therapist being supportive, but I think that it is incorrect and dangerous advice for a professional to give out. She needs to give more realistic advice IMO. I want some facts, not fairy tails. She is also way to supportive sometimes. I need support, but sometimes I feel she praises me like you would praise a 5 y/o kid instead of an adult. Anybody else’s therapists do this?
