Once my therapist and I were talking about the real/unreal. For example, the other day I thought children were conspiring against me in the coffee shop. I didn’t act out but I thought to myself I would have felt better if I child actually pointed at me and giggled or something.
Once in a pawnshop I sold a few old items and as I was walking out I heard the clerk shout “bst*rd." I didn’t go back in to confront him. Anyways, I told the therapist you know what I’d be happy if folks really did this stuff rather than me being tortured in my mind.
Am I weird for taking this position?
