Hi Fairywings,

I can understand how confused you feel.

It is so hard when a therapist says something that we're not sure how to interpret. Everytime that happens to me I want to quit too. I am definitely the queen of quitting therapy.

But I try to post here. Get some support. Some different interpretations. Loosen up that solid block of hurt.

So here's one way of looking at it -

Many people with bad childhoods (and I definitely include myself in this group) think oh geez I should definitely be over this already. What is wrong with me? Why can't I move on? And a lot of therapy is spent dealing with the fact that I think I should be over this rather than with any part of my past.

As a therapist, he must know this. So maybe his questions/statements were more probing. Is Fairywings at the stage where she still thinks this should be just behind her or does she realize that there is still much work to do?

I don't really know enough about your therapist to know if this is a likely tactic of his. But I guess I do know that feeling of let me get the heck out of therapy should not be acted on.

Let us know how it goes.
