No, not my office, my therapist’s.
Let me run two statements past you:
- Gorblimey, the sediment’s really been stirred lately and all sorts of muck is floating up from my past to haunt me. It’s really painful, it leaves me feeling like shit, and … well, his office used to be like a haven, right? A safe place? At the moment it feels like a haunted house. Can’t wait for this to be past. It’s got to be done, I guess: this feels so crap it must be the “zone of proximal development”.
- My therapist and I are doing some great work together at the moment, really getting stuck into some troublesome events and issues from my past, and I have complete faith that the effort we’re putting in will be worth it in the long run.
Now, on a scale of 1 to 10, how congruent do you think those statements can be?
