Sarah: Maybe if we tried working together we could ease some of the tensions. We're all pulling in different directions.
John:  That's the trouble with the world, Sarah darlin'. People got different ideas concernin' what they want out of life.

Speaking from my own experiences with this, the only way to know if something works is to test it out in the real world. Then you can develop your own ideas about what's right for you and what works. You build up a repertoire of experience with people and life. No one person is right all of the time, and some people are right only about certain things.

You don't have to put all your trust in any one person or idea. Making a commitment to therapy, for example, doesn't mean you have to go for the rest of your life; you control your decisions. If it works well for you then you can continue. If it doesn't help, you can stop at any time. You have more control than you think. Other people don't dictate how you live and what you do.

Yes, it's true your doctor can be misguided, but if you believe your doctor is wrong you can tell him so or find another doctor. No doctor is 100% right all of the time.

If you truly are rejecting positive change, ask yourself why this is so. Are you afraid, lack skills or can't bear disapproval of others? Sometimes it's best to not think too much and take action instead. You'll soon know whether your action is right for you. Again, it's about building up a repertoire of skills and experience.
