RE: posting on the psychology board

Posted by RealMe on November 11, 2007, at 16:43:21

I have not posted much recently about what has been going on with me in therapy but plan to do so tomorrow. I have a lot to do today, and just got an email back from my therapist that was short but said what I needed to hear.

Anyway, it seems to me that most everyone here do post about their therapy as well as to offer support and encouragement to others. I find this most helpful to both give and receive feedback from others when I post about what is going on with me personally and in my therapy and when others convey what is going on with them.

I have noticed, however, that a very small few come and comment on the postings of others but never say a thing about their own therapy and what is going on for them as a result of therapy. I got to thinking about this and found myself feeling very uncomfortable with those persons who really don't disclose about self but are more than willing to say something about what someone else has posted and especially when it is some sort of platitute. I wasn't sure at first why I was so uncomfortable with this as most people do the same as me and post thoughts feelings, fears, triumphs and tribulations from therapy. It occured to me that the reason I feel so uncomfortable with someone who does not post about their own issues--their therapy and/or their thoughts, feelings, fears, etc, is because I (and others) am allowing myself/ourselves to be vulnerable while the one or two persons are not. I ask myself why don't they share too, and I don't know the answer. I am curious as to what others who share think of this as well.
