In reply to therapy takes up too much room in my mind, posted by LlurpsieNoodle on September 1, 2007, at 9:53:54

I've talked about this off and on with my therapist. His reply is usually, "it is about time." He thinks that allowing yourself to be fully in this experience means that there are times when it is "the" most important thing - you need your therapy time and space because you are making room for yourself. Other times it eases back and you don't have as much time or mind space for it all. It ebbs and flows.

It is hard for me not to worry and guard against all the potential things you mentioned. But as much as I guarded, they happened anyway. So learning to spend less energy being guarded and more being present was a process. I'm better at it now...sometimes.

And I'll throw this out too. This sounds a little like a defense against going deeper - a red herring, if you will. Is therapy really taking up too much time and space - or is it getting scary so you (unconsciously) are starting to look for reasons to back off? Just a thought.
