in t this morning -
my therapist and i talked about a lot of
things

he brought up the concept
of

Gestault therapy (innovated by Perls ??sp)

anyway it has to do with accepting
the whole of you

the good and the negative -
the dark and the light -

it is helping me stay in the present
so far and not be so despairing of every
moment and every person -

feeling ok -

another part of this therapy is that each person
leans either a little bit
individually in either "direction"

and that - the precept is that we are
all trying -

so it is helping me not hate myself - for accepting that part of my gestault is that
sometimes - i am a little... dark -

- kind of this wholeness thing is saying:
- it's part of me -
likewise that will be part of the other
in the relationship- and there can be a
joy in the relationship -
