Pardon us while we wax philosophical. We are in the middle of a switch…

It is dark in my room. I’ve succumbed to the internal pressure of my members to blog. It’s been a while since we blogged but no worries here. New insights have been gained and a new committal to therapy has taken place. A new attitude had developed that therapy has to be uncomfortable, it isn’t pretty, it’s going to hurt, but I will heal and be able to live a better life.

Our T. keeps telling us how we avoid the topics that we need to explore in order to heal. That is somewhat true, although we’ve done a much better job of owning up and sharing the painful and embarassing details we’d rather leave out. It’s hard to NOT avoid. For ex, we’ve been avoiding this blog since October because it’s so hard to figure out just what to say. We get nervous going to Randy’s, our T. Despite reassurances from him, we worry if he’ll judge us, think negatively of us, not want to help us anymore. Our husband sees a T. and we’ve asked him if he gets nervous when he goes and he says no. Maybe it’s just us.

Randy gave us an assignment in our last session and we haven’t done it. We’re avoiding it. 🙂
