I went to my therapy session yesterday. I felt I had to go because vertigo had stopped me from attending my last session. I talked about my homework from the previous session. I had to write down the stuck points or automatic thoughts and break them down according to distorted thinking. This is supposed to help me dismiss the thought and replace it with a more positive one. I was a little confused by thinking it was what situation brought the thought on so, I asked for more sheets so I could go back and actually do it correctly.
I have a very good and caring therapist. We took one of the thoughts apart that I had written down and found another underlying one. They both connect with the trauma I had.
I was upset that I didn’t process the homework correctly. My therapist let me know that no one is perfect! What counts is that I am dedicated to doing the work that will help me heal.
Until next time,
