Example text

This means imposing on the patient our fantasy of cure and closing down his own possibility of a future. If these were the only forms of including the future dimension in interpretation, I would not even mention the problem. If we examine the analytic bipersonal situation carefully, we become aware of the prospective dimension and that it should be interpreted. To interpret is to act with the thought, on the symbolic level, to search for something in the future, and to include explicitly the temporal dimension.

These temporal depressive feelings appeared in a 22year-old woman patient in a fantasy of old age. She felt that her life was over, that she had no hope of ever experiencing love or maternity because “it was too late”. Paradoxically, she saw in single women fifteen years older than herself more possibilities of life and of having children. She saw herself in terms of wrinkles and the menopause. Time had stopped after her mother’s death a couple of years before, and she felt deeply guilty about it.

This insight, as we can see in the transference situation, gives rise to great mental pain and guilt when the depressive position is at its height. But it also brings about feelings of relief and hope, which in turn make it less difficult to reunite the two aspects of the object and of the self and to work through the depressive position. This love is based on the growing unconscious knowledge that the internal and external object is not as bad as it was felt to be in its split-off aspects. Through mitigation of hatred by love the object improves in the infant’s mind.
