I'm not sure if I have this or not... We've been together so long that it feels as comfy as an old shoe.

There have been times, and still are sometimes, when I feel held in therapy, and it's the most wonderful feeling in the world. Is that what it is?

Most sessions I feel connected with him from the moment I get in the room. His every reaction, his moods, his level of engagement, all are as tangible as if I could reach out and feel each slight change in texture or see every microscopic ripple. But that's on my side. On his side, he usually is there, engaged, and what we create from our combined energies is an almost sacred therapeutic space. Sort of like when the wands met in Harry Potter 4 but without the fight part of it. If he isn't putting himself fully into the engagement, I'll usually try to coax, then pull him in, and if that doesn't work I get a bit frantic. But that is the everyday level of therapeutic engagement. Not anything out of the ordinary.

I'm not sure if I've had what you two are talking about. I feel restless when I read it, which tends to make me think I haven't.
