I would hope you do
Sometimes it helps to hear what people would actually say... I dunno, it helps me anyway. I find that when I get words rather than or along with concepts I get what people mean in a different way.
I don't think anyone is expecting you to use their words as is.... just to think about the concepts behind them and see if they are useful to you in thinking about who you are and how you could address the issue in the best way for you.
