> It's really hard, this one. I mean, they are just human, and they must at times behave in ways that are not integritous (is that a word? what I mean is "full of integrity")

For example, if he/she was getting divorced and you heard some of the details of the settlement, which showed that he/she was actually quite mean and grasping. Would that shake the way you felt about him/her in therapy?

I think it would. There's only so much of a person's real self they can hide for any length of time. And even if he's really good at hiding it, that in itself seems kind of unfair and deceptive to me.

I realize that it's best for me to not know all about him. I certainly wouldn't expect to know all about my GP or an ER doctor and I could be literally trusting them with my life. I guess this is so different because it's such an interpersonal relationship.

Nice to see you here vwoolf.
