Although they’re NOT my Therapist

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I’d appreciate it if they’d ask for my permission before giving me advice,
And I wish,
I felt they’d more DEEPLY consider,
If what they feel I need to hear will truly help,
INSTEAD of damage,
And/Or do nothing..,
And/Or whatever and however..,

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I wish they’d,
Understand why,
I struggle to understand,
And struggle to,
Just f*cking do it,
Or,
As I sometimes say,
whatever is a better way,
To put it..,

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I feel,
They do NOT need to make me feel worse by excusing how their words hurt me by saying or exclaiming,
“I’M NOT YOUR THERAPIST!!”

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I often feel,
They can still help me,
By empathizing,
With the pain I feel due to trying,
Instead of criticizing,
And telling me what I need to do,
That I’m already and have been constantly,
Struggling to do and (I guess) continue,
Huhhh,
??

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I feel,
They can try,
To understand,
Why I see and act differently,
And maybe,
Just maybe,
More understanding will help us function,
More effectively?

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I believe,
We can share empathy,
And maybe,
Just maybe,
Coexist,
More compassionately,
??

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
Or,
Although we’re not each other’s therapist,
I feel,
We can look deeper,
To discover,
Greater ways of being kinder towards one another,
So we,
May not need as much (or too much(?)) therapy,
And that we,
Essentially,
May more likely,
Feel and function better,
Ongoingly,
??

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I feel,
They can still feel me,
They can,
Empathize,
Instead of hurtfully criticizing,
..,
And I hope that being kinder,
May ALSO for them,
Help them,
Feel less pain inwardly,

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I’m not sure if it’s too much to ask for (?),
If,
They can just listen,
And just,
Be there,

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
To be real,
I’d say I often feel,
That,
They (meaning many others) can sufficiently,
Empathetically,
Understand,
And I feel I can and WILL (if I have NOT already) reciprocate,
And hopefully we can and/or further create,
(As a friend who was not my therapist essentially told me),
“Bridges of understanding”,
(To paraphrase or not (I do NOT exactly know..(?))),
No matter how similar or different we are,

Although they’re NOT my therapist,
I feel,
We can connect deeper and deeper,
We can learn,
To deeply,
Understand each other,
To work together,
Even better,
That’s what I’d guess,
Regardless if someone is or is NOT my therapist,

??

And yes,
I guess,
As I often imply and/or say (?),
Since the reality just to me,
appears to be,
A certain way,

I just,
Feel my must,
In what I see fit in my most suitable way,
Keep going,
Through another present,
Of,
Another,
Day
