> His response is you'd be surprised at what others think

My T said much the same to me, when I confessed to almost constant suicidal ideation. I thought long and hard about this disclosure. He doesn't ever disclose about other patients; he does disclose quite a lot about himself. I do believe that, when he said this to me, he was saying something like: "I too have days like that."

It was healing to come to this recognition. I wonder if your therapist is saying the same thing.

It can be very hard to admit these feelings, yet they do often seem to want to come out. I think this is true even if you're a therapist with these feelings. So if a therapist with these feelings met a fellow sufferer who was feeling alone in their specific hurt, he or she might naturally say something like this, to share the burden and relieve the isolation *on both sides* without losing face professionally.

just my two cents.
