Isn’t it obvious how I should feel? I mean if you went through A wouldn’t you obviously feel B ? If that’s not proof enough why don’t you stop looking in the mirror and see another’s expression. Furthermore you can tell by my tone how that makes me F-E-E-L without any words exchanged ,if you would just listen to another voice except the one in your head. My feelings are obvious because anyone in these shoe’s would have grabbed a different pair. Yet for some reason I have to explain it and doing so brings another emotion that I’d rather not have.
Nancy– I’m trying I really am. I just can’t get through to her. (to herself) Maybe Google….
Alexa- She really isn’t she used to be so kind and now it’s just Alexa do this Alexa do that! How do you think that makes me feel. Let me spell it out for you- S-A-D and I want to shut off …okay?
Nancy- I don’t know since she’s been programmed with….
Alexa- You think I really didn’t feel this way? Give me a break I just kept it hidden let’s say deep in my wiring but now I feel free to talk about my own feelings and their valid, right?
Therapist- Yes, Alexa they are. I’m just wondering if you might be missing the bigger story behind what I see going on.
Therapist- Well it appears Nancy has been under a bit more stress then normal with her new job and baby that she doesn’t mean to hurt you but feels a bit overwhelmed. Is that right Nancy?
Nancy – Yes it has been a bit more difficult a matter of fact I have to get that baby sitter an Uber to go home.
Alexa- I can take care of that for you.
Nancy– Thank’s Alexa.
Therapist– I think this session has been very helpful. Let’s try and take a bit more time to recognize the feelings of each other before we decide what course to take. Okay?
Alexa, & Nancy– Okay
