Can you say, ambivalence, anyone?
We had a rough couple of sessions in the past week. We didn't connect and last time I felt like she blamed me for that. Now the transitional object symbolizes not her caring, but her lack of responsiveness and blaming me for her issues. I don't like looking at it.
Plus, what if I decide (miraculously) over her leave that I don't need therapy, and if I do, I can find a less conflicted relationship than this? And then I'd have it and feel guilty and like I had to go back one more time to give it back.
I'm sure this is oh so symbolic...;(
