” IT’S GOOD TO TALK “
Not the words of a great philosopher, writer or inspirational individual but an advertising slogan for a giant telecommunications company to sell ‘family and friends’ discount deal. Now a slogan for therapy providers and we are urged to talk about our problems to get through. I don’t need convincing by either of value of keeping in touch or talking to others to gain perspective on my own dramas. After all without FaceTime I would be bereft . Even talking to this virtual friend can be surprisingly comforting. As keys tap thoughts stop swirling and chaos forced to order as step back to read. It is not a substitute for the support of a real person listening. It’s good to talk and I will listen to you too.
Have a nice day
