Resistance

Jill and I had a breakthrough session in couples counseling today. I bitched about my struggles with my mom (struggles illustrated on the left), and Jill tearily expressed her empathy for my sense of abandonment. When our therapist explained that this was a huge step in our relationship because Jill can react to my pain with emotions which I try so hard to stifle, Jill broke out laughing, and said, "I'm sorry, but this is a little too cozy."

And...scene.

Just because I agree to go to therapy with you doesn't mean I'm going to talk about my feelings.

PS - I thought my mom was supposed to be Lucille Bluth.

Like mother, like daughter.
