I had one of those terribly sad sessions today..

You know the kind where you feel so incredibly sad-kind of like a deep mourning? I'm almost relieved though-but not yet-still sad. I have to make some art about this.
Peace babblers.

(((sleepygirl)))

yes, i think i know what you mean. i haven't had one of those in a long time. they can be hard. but i think they may be healing.

do you know what you were grieving for?

I think that's one of the ways therapy heals. All of that sadness gets let out a bit at a time.

I'm glad you feel relieved and that you have art to express your less verbal feelings.

sleepygirl i know exactly what you mean. i can only guess that when we reach certain topics maybe even unconsiously emotionally we need to grieve for ourselves...we've all been through a lot.
take gentle care of yourself

Yep, I've been there. So draining, but it does help.

Take gentle care.

for what my parents never were, because it's not my fault, because I'm probably not all that horrible of a person, because my T really cares about me - strange - makes me sad somehow and grateful at the same time

Seems my last several have been a lot like that. Sometimes the whole session, sometimes only a part of it. But the sadness, and what for me always seems like a hole in my heart...sort of an emotional "sucking chest wound," lingers on for hours - or a day or two.

I can function, but the sadness is right there underneath the surface. It must be grief, although I don't always get right away what I'm mourning over.

B2, you really gave me an idea...that we could just be releasing the feeling, in general, of grieving for ourselves because of going through losses and anxiety and separating from people and being abused by people (for me, only as as adult...but they still wounded my spirit by being callous and horrible to me) - all of it. Before, I've always tried to pinpoint one thing, one event, one moment each time this awful sadness comes, but maybe I don't need to do that.

It is okay to grieve for *all* or *every* past hurt and the suffering that went along with living through all of them, isn't it? Wow..that helps me to think of it that way. thanks, B2 and sleepygirl...for this thread.

i think i know how that feels. it is strange but on some level it makes sense. sometimes when you get what you've been missing it makes you sad for what you didn't have before more than you are happy that you have it now.
