He surprised me again.

In reply to Any impressions of my therapists boundaries?, posted by Dinah on January 17, 2005, at 10:42:01

I brought this up today, and the fact that I had been anxious after our last session that he might say "Eeek, I've let my boundaries go to h*ll. I'd better shore them up!" He thought that was funny. He said he was very comfortable with his boundaries, and the fact that his boundaries in long term therapy aren't the same as ones in short term therapy.

But then he really surprised me. He said that I have formidable boundaries of my own, and that, while he respects them and is careful to honor them, that he does run into them from time to time, and feels restrained. He mentioned my physical boundaries about touch. That's probably true. But I had thought I was totally no boundaries when it came to emotions. We're both supposed to give the matter more thought.

He did say my emotional boundaries had definitely loosened over time. Quite probably true.

It's astonishing that he can still surprise me after ten years. I'll have to give it a good deal of thought.
