i too have felt like my therapist and i are more like friends than some sort of more distant, colder relationship. the big difference is i willingly tell her the difficult stuff that i dont bore my friends with. and she lays it on the line in return-sometimes right in my mcLAP. in the beginning, i wanted her to push me every which way to get me to grow. this has happenned, but ONLY after we got to know each other. she's left me thinkin about things that have caused major growth that of course i wont allow myself to see because that would mean i'm getting better. as far as the money thing goes, I gave her a raise a few weeks back!
she's very understanding about $$ and gives me NO greif about it whatsoever. she's just a very reachable person. do i know a lot about her? she likes sunglasses and boots and she's done me one HELL of a lot of good-got me to stop playing my timewasting games with her-like trying to make her laugh-i aint there to practice stand-up comedy routines although it was sort of like that in the beginning.
and thats the sum total of what i know. and she cares. and thats PLENTY goodenuf for me.
