Poet, thanks for your warm wishes. I'm sad, though about your statement above. It sounds to me that perhaps you feel like you are not doing a "good job" in therapy. Maybe I'm reading too much into your post. But if that's what you meant, please don't feel bad about your therapy work.

I bet I would love having a client like you. I know I've always liked your posts. Maybe in therapy it just takes a bit more for you to feel comfortable expressing yourself?

We all go at our own pace. It's a dynamic combination of the T, the client, where each are in their lives and experience, what's going on externally at the moment, and what the issues are. I'm sure that you are doing what you need to do, and merely coming each time and trying is the main thing. Think of all those who do not have the strength or courage to do this hard work right now. Or maybe ever.

And we all have therapy ups and downs. Right now I feel like there is an up, but I know there will be more downswings and back ups before I am done.
