Synergy and therapy

Posted by ClearSkies on August 29, 2007, at 14:29:28

Twice now, after I've had my therapy appointment, something has come up that day that has been relevant to what we've discussed. Today we talked about how my husband has not been able to appreciate the value of therapy ("couldn't you just call a friend and talk about your problems instead of paying this lady to listen?"). It really sets me off when he talks like this because, in fact, I don't have many friends IRL, and I don't like feeling defensive about my therapy time. So we talked about what it was that resonated with me, and my T suggested that I call a friend to make a lunch date to talk to her, instead of sitting around waiting for someone to call me. (Amazing that I would consider doing that, even.) There is only 1 or 2 people that I would even have the nerve to call to meet with.

So this afternoon the phone rings and it's one of these 2 local friends, who just wants to talk and I'm sitting there listening, and I'm thinking, Wait, did my therapist tell her to call me? So bizarre!!! And of course the talking is NOTHING like therapy, but it's exactly like two friends talking and being supportive. It was a lovely call and I just felt like it was totally set up!

And the time before this was my therapist wondering aloud if I might want to interact more with others by maybe volunteering at another place. And that afternoon I got the call for an afternoon of work, after almost 3 years of no work at all.

If this is a conspiracy, then I'm in!! It's just weird and nice feeling, and makes me believe even more than ever that everything happens exactly when it's supposed to, and not a minute before.
