Another thought about temperature . . . Racer

My therapist, who always doodles when he speaks, drew a thermometer and said that sometimes we share things on the cold end where we're not in touch with the feelings at all and sometimes we talk on the hot end when we are overwhelmed and emotionally flooded. He said the therapeutic change doesn't begin until you are in the mid-range and that it is his job to manage the temperature on any given issue. So, I feel that he really takes responsibility to get me there even though it's not a quick process. My responsibility, I think, is just to come in with a fever or hypothermia and report the situation as it is and let him take it from there.

But then, there's that darn trust issue . . .
