Post 480: Unintended Consequences

January 16, 20241 min read

I am reading Internal Family Systems Therapy, and I find it interesting when Richard Schwartz discovers all the pain happening to his clients comes from different parts of the patient’s brain trying to protect themselves from something they see as a worse evil.

It makes me think about people I have been upset with, and the things they did to me which I have deemed hurtful. I would probably feel better if I just assumed most of the time people were trying to stop something they saw as bad, instead of believing they just did wrong to me on purpose.

To be fair, most of the time, they probably weren’t even thinking about me at all.
