Yes, don’t think any of them has yet found ‘it’ nor do I think I’ll find an ‘it’ but what I’m _hoping_ to find, at the very least, “my fit” – that is, what is the most compatible “family of thought” where I can say, “Yes, this is my neighborhood”.
I already have some clues; for example, I know that transactional analysis is there and I’m mapped some of that. But I’ve NEVER been able to figure out the BREAK from Freud; that is, why I have always detested Freud and he has never made any sense to me.
And now I know WHO the break came from – which tells me that what I’ve learned is vaguely from this family; that of Ronald Fairbairn at the extreme. It’s very encouraging; finding out that they simply did not teach him for decades (I guess in hopes he’d just go away) explains the knowledge hole I was in;
