Some people may be able to do a better job, but some people not. That's how we got into these kind of situations -- real self lost, in fog, however it is for us. People in our lives couldn't be there for us. Sad. There are no words. No emoji even.

The best for me has been a support group, on PC somewhat but a really good one In Real Life, too. Therapists always failed me. Maybe it was a (needed) repetition, for me to really feel how I had been failed early on, but it took me over 50 years in therapy for that! And I got hurt, over and over, because those people couldn't really be there for me, either.

I got to the roots of my hurt, though, finally. And that's the part "I" had to do, I guess. Hope your schema therapy helps with that -- and that you can find some people who are trustworthy and who you can be your real self with. It takes time, but don't be afraid to question your therapist, or try to find another, if something doesn't feel right.
