Some of the goals of therapy

To find ways to love and accept love

How to stop getting stuck in feeling bad about yourself

To create a fuller and happier life

To find ways out of helplessness and the feelings of being overwhelmed

To find a way out of the unnecessary pains, sadness, and losses in our lives

The Supreme Court oftentimes has to judge how to evaluate conflicting rights.  What to prioritize, what to limit in the extension of the rights, and how to weigh the impact, the consequences of their decisions.  We, as persons, sometimes have to evaluate conflicting responses to a painful situation.  Each alternative will include painful consequences and yet reality requires choice.  In these decisions we encounter both our priorities and values, and in addition, the visions of the consequences.  Suffering is a necessary part of some choices we need to make.  Accepting the suffering rather than avoiding it's  presence in our consciousness is important.  Avoidance and denial can spread over our mind and create pillars of rationalizations.
