I think you are right about your need to bring in "good" things but perhaps you are also trying to connect your therapy in a more real world way, the way kids do when they bring stuff from their room to show and tell. It connects home and school. I think sometimes we test out what we like to see if it is acceptable to other people. This sounds so much like what a 5 year old would do. It is very sweet that you trust him and want to show him your special things.

I think hearing and feeling that he accepts all parts of you helps you believe you aren't bad. But I also think that there are times (like now) that we have to test that some -- we keep presenting different parts of ourselves for inspection, good and bad things.

And don't over look the fact that you recently wrote that you felt sort of sad that your adult-to-adult relationship that was so easy and relaxed had become strained somewhat by the distrust of your younger self. Connecting around pictures and poetry and flowers sounds like a nice way to have shared moments.

Please keep writing about your sessions. They make me feel hopeful.
