I am aware in order to figure out someone’s heart, soul, mind, attitude etc…. you have to get to know them. Only then can you ascertain a fuller picture of someone. I don’t intend giving away too much of my own psychology/PTSD/Complex PTSD understanding and insight, or talk about this blog, my website etc, too soon. Not because I want to keep that from the new psychologist, but because I want to get to know her and what she’s about.
I realise I need a very insightful, very mature, very experienced, honest person….. who has very rational thinking. And I will work out whether she does. Over time. And if she does have thinking different to mine, that’s okay depending on what it is, and the motivation and heart behind it. I will pick up on all that too.
I remember my first counsellor explaining to me in any new relationship, to take it slowly as in what I speak about, not reveal too much of who I am, and know whether you can have a level of trust in someone, slowly and carefully. I listened to that advice, because it was very good advice. I needed that advice.
At what point I tell her about this blog and website, I don’t know. If the counselling continues, I will give her the links if she wants them, because it will inform her of how much I do know, where I am at, my history etc. It will be interesting to see her reaction to seeing what I have achieved so far in my own healing, educating myself, and the opinions of the professionals around the world, who support me.
But, slowly I definitely will be taking it all.
