Understanding Heals

When I feel understood by someone, I feel better. So it makes me think that understanding heals.

When I searched for “understanding heals” here is one thing I found

It sounded ok till I read this part

Our fears are often of events that have already happened earlier. We project these fears into the future, but what we fear is actually finished. All we have to do is to remember it is in the past.

Understanding brings a lessening of fear. Our fears are often of events that have already happened earlier. We project these fears into the future, but what we fear is actually finished.

Here are some of the questions from our “mom test” – we have found that depressed teens answer yes to most of these questions, sometimes nearly all of them.

We have found that a lot of people think that the questions point to things “all normal parents do”. But we have reasons we include each question, and each reason is connected to some form of abuse or control rather than caring and healthy parenting, as we define it.

So this blog entry is meant to discuss this.
