I think we must all get this fear once in awhile. I went into therapy one day in a "mood" having just come from a manager's meeting. I kept trying to shake it off and my therapist finally just said, "spend 5 minutes and bit** about what's bothering you." So I did. But when we talked about why I didn't want to, I admitting to thinking that constant complaining would get to him and he would either tune out or get frustrated. He asked me an interesting question, "Do you think I would react this way, because YOU are tired to people bit**ing at you all the time? Do YOU tune out or get frustrated?" Hmmm...projection, let me see.

Basically I think I have to remember that it isn't my training to listen to people in this capacity all day. But it is his. So I have to let him do his job. (easier said than done...)
