Yes, it makes total sense. It is the "try to figure it out WITH me" conversation that my therapist often starts. Censoring what I say just is so automatic. I've learned to say, "well, I was going to say "blah blah" but I think I'd rather say "blada blada." That way he knows how my thoughts are unraveling.

I'm halfway through an interesting book on just this topic called "Side Effects." Adam Phillips writes about how the slip ups and asides in therapy are really what we should be paying attention to, which means speaking as freely as possible. It is just so hard!!
