I think it's reasonable to be disappointed because you felt ready to take another step forward and weren't able to.

And I'm not the most reasonable person, so I'd probably be resentful that he wasn't as delighted as I was to the point of cooperating all he could to make it happen. And, also perhaps because I'm not terribly reasonable, I'd be annoyed that he phrased it in things that were for his best interests - for example, not wishing to lessen his credibility. Not that I think it would. But that's the sort of statement that my therapist might make and I might think to myself "Did you mean to say that aloud?"

That being said, he's right about result. There's no way a defense attorney worth his salt would choose someone who would be so likely to identify with the victim.

Maybe it's best to concentrate on the fact that you felt ready to do it? What a big step forward!!
