I certainly wouldn't disagree with that. In fact, part of what I was trying to say is that a lot of us are scared of wanting things that we aren't likely to get. Including therapy things. Like being afraid of calling to ask for an extra session. Or being afraid of caring about our therapists because they probably won't care as intensely about us as we care about them. So we block off those feelings of wanting.

But if you get through therapy ok, you learn it's ok to want those things even if you don't get them. And it's ok to not get what you want, too. Which is a slightly different thing.
