Question Hi, I have identified a few issues that cause me stress and anxiety through introspective exercises. They are long standing, some I've been ruminating about on and off for years, and some have triggers everywhere. Can you have successful treatment / resolution despite the fact that your problems aren't solvable / resolvable (e.g. a situation long passed, an unattainable want/need, or in extreme cases, irrational magical thinking)? Is acknowledgement and awareness sufficient, or is a resolution necessary? Thank you very much, your time and insights are greatly appreciated!
