Fear of being to cruel to T.

I am afraid that today she will end it because I am the kind of person who digs deep for someone's weaknesses and then stick needles in the person using their weaknesses. I constantly do it to her. I think it is easier to tolerate overt cruelty than covert. terrics

Tell her that you see this as a trait of yours and that you are afraid that you are doing this to her. This is something that should be talked about.

I agree w/ falls. Actually, I think your T would be *thrilled* if you brought that up w/ her. Insight into some of your difficulties--what T wouldn't want to work with a client like that?! ;)

Best,
EE

Hi Terrics,
I think I used to do this to avoid becoming attached to anyone. Instead of them letting me down, I brought them down instead. I think for me it was a trust issue. I am sure you won't be the first one to do this to your T . I would talk to her about it, it could be very insiteful for you about yourself. :) Hang in there, and don't worry I won't let you poke my eyeball out! LOL Just kidding! :)
