Even after all this time I still hear some struggle and question in your post around this. Maybe it will always be this way, that the nature of relationships *are* that we don't want to disappoint the other person.

He told me today that the MOST important thing we are working on is this fear. This fear that needing him, or anyone, will result in rejection and hurt. And he said he doesn't expect talking about 1, 10 or 1000 times will be enough. It will just take time.

I hope I get past that fear of therapy ending before I'm ready. I envy you that. It is hard to keep discovering there is *more* to let out. I have to check in to make sure he can still take it, that it is OK to actually tell him this stuff.

Maybe I should do what GG does and not wear my lenses. Then I couldn't "read" him so well.
