I don't feel that wise. I feel like a little girl stomping her feet and saying that if trying to be more responsible leads to fights, then I'm just not going to do that any more. I'm trying to at least change that thought to that I'm not going to talk about it any more. :)
My middle name is avoidance.
My therapist is a counselor, and I think that he tends to be more directive than a more analytically trained therapist would be. He often problem solves with me. Sometimes it's helpful, sometimes it's not. Sometimes I really don't need problem solving.
I don't think it bothered me that he agreed with me. It's not something I'm particularly sensitive about. He has said more hurtful things to me when he was trying to be nice, I think. He does hurt my feelings plenty. But not this time.
I sometimes think that this whole thing is just coming to a puttering stop. But by the time it finally ends, I'll be more than happy to have it happen.
