Having hard time with feeling vulnerable

Posted by Poet on December 9, 2004, at 21:54:48

I saw my therapist this morning, became a sobbing mess after a bad job interview, this afternoon, and talked to her tonight. She is seeing me Saturday, too.

On the phone she said that in today's session she could feel my discomfort and withdrawal when she talked about it being okay for me to be supported financially by my husband and emotionally by her.

She wants me to call her when I am upset, let her support me *hold me emotionally.*

Why can't I just let some little part of me say *it's okay to let her give me emotional support, to let her care about me?*

She so obviously wants me to let her *hold* me so to speak and all I feel like doing is calling and canceling Saturday.

She told me that she knows how much I hate myself for feeling vulnerable, but wants to be there for me.

I'll try to accept any support you have to offer. Right now I'm too much of a mess to be of any help to anyone, so sorry if I'm not posting responses.
