Self-Determined

One time I couldn't talk and T just stayed present without talking too. It felt like a very very long time. It felt like ten minutes of me not talking but maybe it was five minutes which still felt like a long time. T just sat there and drew a bit on her notes. She draws a lot. She didn't make a big deal when I started talking again, although it happened in fits and starts, she just kept waiting, and responding when I did talk. I think she has a lot of patience. When we processed it the following session she said I was like a warrior when I was silent.
