A look at psychoanalytic literature is always enlightening and also engrossing, and I would have studied this full time or would do (it is another way I would betray my current, and apparently very jealous profession).
I see that the “false self” that U.S. psychotherapy associates with success, is not what the notion of “false self” is. Rage, however, has to do with abandonment and having to present a false self.
I see that depression is a result of this abandonment and repression of feelings, splitting off of feelings, as well. A trauma reaction, as I have been saying. You can heal it and regain vitality.
I knew I was right.
