You might wish to begin therapy because you feel restricted in your life. At the same time, you might also have noticed impatience in yourself when presented with the limitations of your life. Often this is called depression, and through careful listening and understanding it is possible for you to hear the statements you make to yourself that illustrate this dilemma, as well as learn to notice how this basic assumption can distort your perceptions of yourself and your life. The first step for you would be to look at your limitations squarely and to try to work out where they come from.

This can be profoundly helpful for you if you are wishing to resolve feelings of depression quickly, before beginning the more demanding work of starting to become more intimate with yourself and your life. Often clients find this surprising; that understanding boundaries and limits can be the first step towards enhancing intimacy rather than destroying it.
