(30 sec read) One of the unspoken tragedies of CBT and therapy as a whole has been not what it taught about myself (super helpful), but what it taught me about the people around me. Of course, I can’t psychoanalyze acquaintances from afar, but observing problematic behavioral patterns can work against me if/when I speak up about them or attempt to address (like intervention). As if I am some superhero Captain Cognitive swooping in with a cape.

You try not to hold others to unreasonable standards, but self improvement might find you holding higher expectations than before, which can turn a social bridge into a wedge. Whether this is good or bad idk. Change is hard, I suppose.
