Because if I am happy then it will be taken away.
I am scared. What if they’re taken away because I am happy? I don’t know what to do. Maybe if I just keep hurting myself then I’ll keep them safe. The trouble is that the therapists want me to let go of this belief. Easy for them. Where’s the risk for them? It sounds mad. Maybe it is mad. Can anyone prove that I’m wrong?
They don’t understand.
