I’m falling in love with my therapist.
Who wouldn’t fall in love with someone who gives them undivided attention, validation, support, safety, kindness, compassion, and attunement?
Also, she’s smart, funny, and attractive.
Today, I told her as much. She was super interested in what I had to say and encouraged me to keep bringing these feelings into session.
Still, somehow this feels awful. I want it to stop. Intense emotions, good or bad, are very painful and difficult to manage. And I struggle to understand what this all really means.
I feel so raw, so exposed and wide open. I feel frightened. I feel anxious and ashamed.
It also feels good. Really good.
What a mess.
