If your therapist is starting to discuss something that’s hard for you, you might want to back off on speaking about it. It could be that it hurts to think of or that you genuinely feel you do not know the deeper answers that they’re trying to find. If you only permit them in on half of the info, your progress will be hindered.
It’s your therapist’s objective to help you make progress in the locations that you’re having problem with. And in order for them to do that, they need you, to be honest with them. This does not mean that you require to pour out every detail of your life, but ensure that the information you are sharing is true. Lying or attempting to misguide your therapist will make it harder for them to help you. It is fine to speak if you feel uncomfortable, however attempt to be honest.
