You know, I was just talking with someone today about a similar issue. I sometimes worry that my T is thinking, "This again?" or "Sheesh, get over it!" Now being on the other side of the couch, I can safely say I can't recall thinking that about a client. So I think it's that ashamed or judgemental part of me that's projecting that message onto my T.

Could you be doing the same? And we pretty much all have a basic human need for connection. It's right up there after stuff like shelter, food, warmth, etc. It makes sense that if you felt that connection in a very positive way in the past, you would miss that and reach out for it in times when maybe you don't feel so connected elsewhere.

As Martha Stewart would say, "That's a good thing."

Take care,
