Me: I know that the way I’m thinking about this is Crazy —
Therapist: Let’s not call it ‘Crazy.’ Let’s call it…..’Consistent with your Patterns.’
Me:…WHICH ARE CRAZY?
Therapist:…which are your Patterns.
Me: But are my Patterns weird? I mean, are they normal?
Therapist: ….They are your Patterns.
Me: Now I’m worried about my patterns and feeling guilty for having them. Wait, am I doing the Patterns right now?
Me: I FEEL SO CONSISTENT WITH THEM
