I wrote it out, but I'm not sure if I'll actually be able to bring myself to share it with you

Hi R,

Couple of things. First - thanks for your email, and not letting me twist myself up in knots any more than necessary over a simple mistake.

Secondly - 'Who am I holding it together for?' The answer to that one is complex, and more suited to session time. Short version - P is still a problem. I trust you to hold the stuff, but thanks to her, I don't trust myself to contain it between times...and oh boy, am I trying to contain this.



I know it was a fluke, but I'm looking forward to seeing you a little bit sooner than usual.

Thanks,

Lost

You were on your A game today and I did feel closer to you.

Listening to love songs and thinking about you. Uh oh, that can't be good.

Dear T: I want to SH. I said I wouldn't for Lent. But I want to. I probably won't because I don't want to break my promise to myself and to God, but I want you to know how hard this is, and maybe to acknowledge that? Is that too much to ask for, or am I being unreasonable? Kit

You know what, maybe it isn't any of this other stuff I've been speculating about. Maybe it's just that we never had any goals or plans down on paper about this whole process and the never knowing where in the world I was in my 'process' was the whole problem. I know I found a lot of healing along the way and came to know myself a lot better but there was never any measurable anything - I couldn't stand the unknown timetable, the lack of a map with clear points along the way, or something. That's my overriding feeling right now. This other stuff, symptoms of that greater issue.
eta: i also wish i did not feel like i owe you coming back once to say goodbye.

My T said something about this on Wednesday. Wondering whether 'being' is enough. Wondering whether he should be 'doing' more. Not knowing where the path is. It's hard. Hugs.
