Some people expect a few sessions of counseling to change their world, even though it took years to get where they are. Some people get frustrated with counseling because they don’t see any growth, yet, all the counselor can do is give the tools; it’s up to the people to use them.
I see people blaming counselors for lack of growth and I hear people attempt to discredit counseling but it’s nothing more than a cop out. What good is medicine if you won’t take it? What good is a diagnosis if you ignore the doctor’s orders?
It comes down to people blaming counselors for their own indifference, laziness, pride, and stubborness.
By the way, same goes for a sermon, same goes for a bible study, same goes for church…
