Hi, I think you're right. We all tend to take things personally. My T. seemed very agitated the other day. She had been away and I do not think it was a vaction. She snapped at me and initially I did take it personally. Then I saw something I had never seen before (I watch her very carefully because her boundaries are so strong..I am always looking for some sign that she is really 'human'). She looked very old and tired and had such a sad look in her eyes. She did not seem to mind that I was looking into her eyes. It seemed as though she had no choice but to let her 'human'side show. I was surprised and I could feel empathy for her at that moment. Therefore what you say I think is true. We take it personally but sometimes we shouldn't. I also think therapists should not reveal their problems. It may be ok for them to say something like 'I am a little off today' so we are not injured. terrics
