Okay so my dad passed 10-12-16 and I went back to my therapist that I have seen over the years (she's known me 4 years now-I've went more often at some of the times in this 4 year period than other times-meaning it wasn't a continuous 4 years of therapy). Anyway since my dad passed this is the THIRD time I have seen her. So I wanted to write this on here to see if anyone can make sense of why she has repeated this more than once. Last session she told me "it's okay to feel angry too". I said yea I just feel sad. This session she said it more than once "it's okay to feel angry too" "don't let any anger build up" "let any anger out" I once again said I'm not angry. Why is she pushing for me to be angry or feel angry?! I don't even feel that way?! At first I thought she was saying the whole you'll go through grieving stages anger may be one of them -that whole thing- but now she just keeps repeating it. Why does my therapist want me to be angry?
