Whether you think you can or you think you can't you are probably right. A parrot can repeat what it has learned but the mark of true intelligence is applying what is learned.

Ellie,

When I first saw your reply, I thought, “Oh no I put it in the wrong section.”

E1, this is on the money.

,,"I love that he was SUCH a good listener" turns out to really be "I just wanted to be HEARD". "I love that he was so attentive" turns out to really be "I spend so much time focusing on other people, I just wanted someone to focus on ME for a while". "I love that he made me feel special" turns out to really be "I lost myself and don't know who I am anymore". "I love that he made me feel safe" turns out to be "I've closed off emotionally with people in my life".>>

And this is such a great exercise and something I did too. Before I even entered T, I knew it was about me and not him or the A.

Thanks for posting, I think it will really help some of the newbies. Maybe it should go in the Healing library too?
