> It used to feel awful. I wanted him to be completely strong and composed. When his eyes would redden with tears if I told him something particularly awful, it felt like he was weak, and I neeed strength in him. But in fact, it's part of empathy and doesn't mean weakness. When I have angered or frustrated him, it felt good because I was so upset myself. Hm. That doesn;t sound very nice of me, but do we have to be "nice" to our therapists?

I've always felt that the therapeutic relationship was wonderful because we can trust our therapists to take care of their own needs. :) Not that I'm "frustrating" on purpose, but I don't try to be someone I'm not, either.
