Dinah - sorry I didn't pick up on this thread sooner. It does sound like your therapist overreacted but hasn't he been trying to get you to see that being annoyed with someone is ok - it doesn't mean a loss of affection?

I can identify what you're feeling. I sometimes feel that I disappoint people horribly and it does make me want to disappear - anything not to bear the weight of that disappointment. My guess with you, however, is that your view of what others are feeling about you is a distortion. And I think Shar is right - take off the fisticuffs. If you view yourself more kindly, you may open yourself up to seeing the many ways in which people value you.

What have you decided to do about Friday?

Mair
