> But I have been thinking... About security. Is what people want more than anything to feel safe - or is that just me? I mean... Thinking here of the different stages... Is it that most peoples issues go back to security / safety or do other people have different stuff there?

My heart pounds a mile a minute every time I go to therapy. I feel like I can't breathe. I pass by the street sometimes two or three times because I am in such a fog. So safety is a big issue and therapy just feels dangerous.

Dangerous because I'm letting someone into places forever off limits, because I have so much hope riding on this...
ahhh, I can't go all the way there right now )-:

So I venture forth a bit, talk a little about something scary, and then retreat for a few sessions. Perhaps it's your pattern too?

I do know what you mean about disliking general chats though. For me, I prefer silent sessions than that. Perhaps it has something to do with the fake front I had to put up starting with my mother and then just about everyone else. It feels too similar to that.
