Yes, we do. There has to be magic in therapy, or at least there does for me.

I talked about it with him today. He doesn't see growing up as being incompatible with being a therapee/daughter in our relationship. And in talking about it, he pointed out that a lot of what I was saying seemed to be related to his forgetting to call me not that long ago. I had forgotten all about it and hadn't made a conscious connection, but once he pointed it out it seemed obvious.

I'm feeling better about it. It's not that our session was all that great. He has a really hard time understanding my idiosynchratic notions of what it means to be grown up and what it means to be a daughter. But he tried. Parts of it he does understand.

It reminded me again something that I've learned to be true in all corners of my life. I have a tendency to try to figure things out on my own, and worry about them. Yet if I talk about them with the person involved, things don't seem nearly as bad.
