This Is My Life - I Hope They Understand...

A great song/lyrics by Shinedown. Brings to mind a lot of things about how hard it is for parents to let go and for kids to figure out who they are. Or, by way of analogy to the therapeutic process (e.g., psychoanalysis and growing up as a process of grieving the unrequited). As Muriel Dimen, Ph.D, said in her recent article, "Reflections On Cure, or "I/Thou/It" (Psychoanalytic Dialogues, May-June 2010) about the Second Chance therapy offers:

"Transferring from the unrequited past onto the unrequitable present, the patient purchased a requitable future."
