That's what T said to me 5 weeks ago at my first "adjusted" session, "That's enough about work, what about you?"
Okay, first, my usual sessions were Mondays at 4 p.m. The first adjusted session was that day on a Saturday afternoon (I don't even remember the time). I had just spent nearly an hour talking about Coworker (read about her here. And here). Things with her are forever repeating. That sound monotonous, and it is, but it's also tiring and aggravating. Something had set her off again the week before my session and she was making me nuts! So, I was talking about it with T when all of a sudden, he says, "That's enough about work, what about you?"
What? That was about me. I looked up at him and replied, "But work is all there is. That's all I do."
And for the love of Pete, he looked at me and said, "Oh come on, there has to be more than that."
Note: at my last session, Mr.S DID finally ask about what was going on at work.
Well, Mr.S, no, there isn't more. That's all I have - and you know it. I understand your life is overflowing with duties, activities, family, a new job, etc. But I have precious little to occupy my time outside of work.
I'm not an ambitious person, so I'm not in clubs or organized religions (don't like 'em). I don't have much to do with my family anymore (too much water under the bridge), nor do I have a huge friend base. My work is my life right now and I was trying to get some advice on how to handle Coworker.
I guess not all sessions are worth the time. ...
