    Thank you so much for this. I was looking for exactly the difference between these two.
    I wonder how Trauma factors in this.

    I feel Trauma would affect both relationships (to some extent maybe not detrimental to all) but also for sure subconscious if one buried stuff to survive.

    Just wondering

    I cured myself (was alternately diagnosed schizo-affective/bipolar) with self-psychoanalysis, proper eating and use of flower remedies, after almost 20 years of experiencing pain, misery and failure from the application of psychotherapy and drug therapy. … I believe that, like many other effective cures for illnesses, Freudian psychoanalysis is demonized because the methodology actually cures people; and a cured individual can no longer be a host, whom is exploited by the medical parasites for their own material aggrandizement. Some people will need the assistance of a paid psychoanalysts; however, all that has been necessary for me is to read Freud’s books and apply the methodology to myself.
