external reality checks

the patient has encountered what to him is an insurmountable obstacle. an old dilemma faced by everyone is the question of either asking and getting permission or doing and getting forgiveness; the glass is half full or half empty. he finds that neither solution is the answer.

he wants to look at his situation and not look away, not jump forward, but play it then. unfortunately that creates tremendous tension in him to the point he immediately relies on external help. i can’t supply that for help, it will have to be found elsewhere.
