We’re a very friendly people, Warbler. Someone would likely explain as to why it’s not the done thing to read that rag in Liverpool (or likely anywhere) - and you’d likely be offered the opportunity to bin it, or someone may offer to do that for you.

Information and education are key.

 

Cool. 😃

I don’t want “therapy”. I think the concept is shit.

in other words, you refuse to get help. So don’t say “I don’t refuse to do anything”.

No, I said I don’t want therapy. I think my second statement makes clear that I don’t see it as “help”.

To be fair, it’s expensive; they only know about you what you want them to know; you only get an hour at a time to talk;
and they only (pretend to) care about you so long as you pay them.

I would say a better solution is to have a friend to talk to about stuff like that, but I’m one to talk because I don’t have one of those either.

Friends are good, but they don’t necessarily know about the things psychology/psychiatry that a therapist would know.

Not all therapists are psychologists or psychiatrists.

True, but many are. I am pretty that those whom are not, are required to at least get some training in psychology/psychiatry.

Your letters highlight that you have no idea what really happened.

that is correct, I don’t know what happened. No one does, yet the media(at least the local news that I was watching) acts like it does know what happened and that what happened was racism.

Wouldn’t that be a justification for writing to the media, rather than writing to the people in the story? Maybe I’m missing something.

I suppose I could have written to the media. I just decided to write the people involved.

btw, you do understand I didn’t really send them letters, right?

You asked for opinions regarding your letters, I gave mine. Whether you actually sent them or not, wouldn’t affect my opinion of their content.

Okay.
