Dear T,
I'm scared to read your response that's sitting in my inbox. You were kind and understanding, right?

Dear T,
Upon first read, I think my fears about your response were simultaneously founded and unfounded, if that's at all possible. I feel like you're hearing me and I appreciate your honesty and the fact that you seem to be really trying to do things for my best interest. I just wish you were more comfortable with parts of it. Though...I guess it's better that you're honest about that? Just kinda wish you'd been honest about that, oh, I don't know, 8 months ago, like in our first few sessions... But it feels like you genuinely want to work with me, that you care about me, that you want to try to deal with your discomfort, that you want to better understand.
So, thanks, and see you Monday.

The T's really struggle with being the center of a client's imagination/ focus/ preoccupation. I almost generalized to male T's with female patients, but I didn't want to be sexist. My T and I talked about how the #me too moment in culture really affects them in therapy, as they bend over backwards to separate themselves from all forms of toxic masculinity, any hint of impropriety etc and are privy to really difficult stories of men hurting women in different ways. I think there is a a sincere caring to stay on the right side of every line in the good T's, and if the client can be mistaken for having a romantic interest they get freaked. . (Mine seem too to have a jealous wife, and I get that. I would be really weirded out by my SO having heart to heart talks with women all day I think. He never told me that, but she decorates his office with her pictures lol). This post is kind of shallow in a way, but I think it is a big picture that male T's have to kind of keep in mind that affect the small picture- our intimate hour with them and other communications.

Almost time for the session you cancelled on my behalf. So nice of you to ask how I'd feel about it or take into consideration how broken I was over it on the phone.
