Therapy on the go 

Please do not construe this as disrespectful of therapy. There is, however, no getting around that this is good advice.

Be happy

Sort of reminds me of this classic...

I saw that Bob Newhart short live when it first aired. It's brilliant. Thank you for digging it up for us.

You spend a lot of time worrying that people will think you're anti-therapy, don't you.

Simon, you're a smart fellow. As it happens, I have loved ones in therapy, and I have both seen how effective it can be and developed at least some opinions about its uses and abuses. When I express those opinions about the latter, I do not want anybody close to me to think that I am anything other than supportive.

Two thoughts:

1) Easier said than done.

2) To give advice is very nice, but friends can do much more . . . a friend should always *help* a friend, that's what friends are for.

These thoughts are related. The work of therapy is figuring out what mistakes you keep re-making and why (i.e., it is a consciousness-raising activity) - not just resolving to be happy.

That will be $5. (I don't make change.)
