Default Re: Plural pronoun usage equals permission.

Thanks for bringing this up. I know it is a bit OT but I had noticed T uses plural forms a lot and often ones that imply that there are more people in the room than just the two of us. I wonder if he is opening space for parts to feel welcomed. T and I have not talked about parts yet as we are still new to eachother... but I am pretty sure he would want all the parts to feel like he was available to them and welcoming of them. So, I think he would actually encourage the use of we when appropriate. I think he would see it similar to a family therapy session but just one body. But I am just guessing as we have not gotten that far.
