> I know that I had a bunch of maladaptive coping mechanisms, and when my T pointed some of them out, it was really rough. But I was glad he did so...it helped jolt me out of the mediocrity I was in.

This may be true, but I think part of what you're missing in simcha's message is that timing is everything. It's possible that your T identified these maladaptive coping mechanisms very early on in the piece. But it is unlikely that he pointed them out to you in the first session. I bet he waited until you got to a stage where you were ready to be jolted. You may not have been consciously aware of this readiness, but he would pick it up from things you said/did.

If this is the case, then this is like one of the stones or trees that simcha's pointing out along the away.

Thanks for your message simcha. You articulate yourself so well.
