“Truth needs no defense except when that truth is more than the system can integrate; then it requires defenses.
Our merciful brain has found back-up ways to protect us. It keeps the truth from us even when we go on searching for the truth.
After patients have deep feelings they come up with many truths about their lives. It is buried and defended along with the pain. Thus no one has to give anyone insights; they are already there just waiting for the exit.”
