I got myself to talk a bit more about feelings. And it kind of felt like love, the way he was responding ...


Wow, Amazon, I'm happy for you!!! I hope you can soak it up and believe it! Sounds like you did some good work today.

I was a slightly more brave (less of a coward rather)


Btw, I think "slightly more brave" fits quite nicely. I don't think there's a bit of coward in you.

"Not only, that is, do I have for the patient as much love as he has for me, but my own personal life is as committed as his to the common adventure of his treatment; our dialogue arouses in me, as surely as it does in him, a fruitful inner debate; the evolution of my own life is going to be affected as much as his -- my own self-knowledge, my own liberation from complexes, as well as his . . . . Fine things are often said about disinterested love. But disinterested love is like the one-way charity of almsgiving, whereas all true love is reciprocal


SWOOOOOOOON!!!
Just come across this while preparing to go off to see therapist - now want to cry but good tears I think. I allowed therapist last week to do something nice for me (she gave me a movie DVD) that she thought I would enjoy - and I allowed her to do it (first time ever !) for someone to do something for me and an experience that totally corrected something that happended the week before
