Are you perhaps feeling angry with your therapist? Or confusing feelings for your father with feelings for your therapist?

Whenever I get the desire to cancel without the requisite notice that would keep me from having to pay, I always examine myself closely for anger. For me, at least, it's usually there. Because last minute cancelling, for me, is to some extent an act against my therapist as much as an act for me. Another is leaving my check on his desk as I walk in. It's a way of saying that I just might walk out of session.

You might be completely different of course, and you might not have a shred of anger with him.

In either case, the feelings appear strong enough (and sudden enough) that they are worth exploring. I don't think you should pull away at this point.

I wish I could lift the boulder. Or help you burrow out from underneath it, leaving it behind you.
