The Most Pointless Question a Therapist can Ask

One is meant to come to a Therapist for an answer, not for a question. A mentally unstable individual lacks mental clarity. What is a Therapist, if not representing a leader? Therapists are meant to be like the leader, offering that route the mentally ill individual is so desperately desiring.

That question, which is, “What do you want to do?” As if the mentally ill individual has not asked themselves that question, at the very least, a million times over. As if such a person with an unstable mind came up with the answer, themselves. How does the probability increase itself, when someone else asks it? They know not what to do, and it is why they’ve come to a Therapist, to find an answer.

Should one go to a Therapist, expecting the work to be done by them for the mentally ill individual? No. Though, a seed should be planted for there to be the walk on the path. That seed should be set by the Therapist, being the person evidently paid to aid their patient.

Thus, they should do their job accordingly, and offer them an answer, a path. Show them, though do not do the work for the mentally ill.

  1. Not all mentally ill are alike. Sometimes therapists need to ask questions to help patients to have mental clarity and it works. For more severe cases, you are right: patients need answers and a plan. It is a double edged issue.

    1. It makes sense when the patient has enough mental clarity in them, to be able to form an answer, even while a Therapist asks such a question.

      All mental illness is degenerative, furthering a person away from that clarity. Without clarity, a person is in a fog, not thinking clearly, as they are confused. They are confused on what to do, and where to go.

      So… if a person still possess enough “mental clarity” to find an answer, I’m guessing they saw a Therapist early in their issues, that they “nipped the problem in the bud”, so to speak, before it got any worse.
