    Ave Maria! Howdy folks!
    It seems to me that when you go to a Priests (or another person) for cure of souls or spiritual direction or go to a psychologist (or something similar) you often discus the same things but in a different way it seems to me.
    What can you say about this?

    It all used to be the territory of philosophers. I guess the eternal questions will always be answered in different ways. You will get different answer still by sociologists, family, neighbors, politicians, and just about anyone.............

    Some rely on quantitive data, some rely on blind faith,
    either way the professional is trying to help.

    An interesting thought though :)
    If any or all professionals are delivering the same message by different means,

    does it follow that it isn't necessarily 'the world', our past, bullies, feeling helpless and so on that's at fault
    but simply our reactions to events or circumstances?
    Our own, unique perception?

    Well, both offer counseling, even if the teachings they rely on can be different.

    Both routes can offer support and ideas and strategies and information or inspiration. I guess the choice of the individual indicates what type of help the person in need of it feels will be most helpful for them and their situation. Friends and family are another possible option for some.

    Faith is generally based on a considerable amount of evidence. Anyone with "blind" faith would be an outlier.

    I say the more opinions and perspectives you get, the more it will help you understand and find a solution to problems.
