Just another label
The time since March I spent away from the blog was generally a happy time. I finished school, obtained a job, and have spent the last four months enjoying my time at my work.
Apart from work, things are falling. There are still issues around intimacy I can not escape, and every time I go through these issues I recreate the traumatizing experiences all over again. And I’m to blame. Tonight was no different. And because of my self-inflicted actions earlier, I have lost myself inside my mind. I can’t tell where I am and who is there.
During our last session with Therapist there was something we wanted to say to him but the gatekeeper was stationed and the thoughts couldn’t crawl around the wall. I felt so frustrated and angry. I didn’t know what the thought was but I knew we needed some type of support from Therapist for which couldn’t be asked.
Almost as soon as we got to the car and it was safe, I realized what needed to be said. The discussion in our session touched on abuse and that’s when the feelings came up to say something to Therapist and get support. When we got to the car the littles were upset and had said they wanted a hug from Therapist.
I don’t know how I feel about this. Since we’ve been discussing issues of intimacy, there has been more trust developing for now. And the adult in me thinks it is brave that they would want a hug. I think they deserve a hug.
The adult me also thinks it might be precarious and bad boundaries to ask for a hug. What would he think? Would we regret it? I believe and hope the littles would feel safe and receive the support needed. Therapist is the only that believes them and I fear they might look to him like a father-figure.
I am sure there is a nice, tidy, demeaning psychological label such as transference to explain what is happening. I loathe the idea that our feelings our reduced to psychological jargon.
I have compassion for the littles and will do everything ever possible to keep them safe and sound.
I close this with the feeling once again that feel so much more, but said a lot of nothing.
I think I'm just dead.
