Yes, my therapist is admittedly shallow in some areas. It's one of those things you put up with in someone you're in relationship with. I try not to mention it. I hope he tries not to push it on me. :)

As far as the not trusting, that's always been true, though I don't like to say so on board often. I don't feel comfortable saying bad things about him.

But my rational side has always seen him as a platitudinous hack who really likes money, and has never quite understood the trust and affection and feelings of safety that my emotional side has with him. And my rational side rather cynically suspects that the relationship my emotional side has with my therapist is a chimera. It doesn't actually exist except in my own deluded mind. That I have made up the therapist and therapeutic relationship that I need out of the very rough clay that is my actual therapist and my actual therapeutic relationship. And that my therapist's main actual value is that he rarely interferes with the artificial construct.
