I had my first session with my new therapist today. He seems very nice, and the chat we had was pretty cathartic. I think I started crying about 90 seconds after sitting down, and I didn’t stop until I left an hour later.
Right now, I’m struggling to figure out how I feel about it, but I only seem to be able to focus on how I feel physically – tired and empty. Not sure if this is good or bad yet!
On the way back from seeing the therapist (I got a taxi), the driver was telling me, cheerfully, about how he just took a week off work to build his daughter a vanity for her birthday and how not a single thing had gone right in building it. I remarked that I thought he had a great attitude about it and he said, “Well, the world doesn’t turn if you don’t [have a good attitude].” It couldn’t have been more perfectly timed and just reinforced how I’ve been feeling recently.
All in all, a pretty positive day!
