I guess I meant by just be you to just let yourself go with the flow and don't worry about what your therapist might think. I am trying to do this, and it is really hard. I have already revealed some things that part of me wishes I could take back, and so then I start wondering if he will judge me in some way that I would not like. Even though I have seen him for only a few months, I don't believe he would hurt me. Well, I can say that today anyway. I am afraid of being hurt too, but I figure I have to take the risk. One thing I do know for sure is that I have survived lots of terrible hurts over the years, and so if I were hurt by him, I know I would survive. Not that I want to be hurt.

So, I am meaning to go ahead and say whatever comes to mind and don't monitor it before you speak. If I start talking and look down at the pattern of the rug on the floor, my therapist will wait maybe a minute or two and then ask me what am I thinking. So, I try to go ahead and tell him what I am hashing over in my head even though it is not figured out yet. Don't know if that makes sense.
