One of the things I'm working hard on in therapy is NOT being my own therapist...but instead, acknowledging how I'm feeling and knowing when to accept support from friends and family. I have to trust the people that I care about to help me process the crud...and I have to use the skills I'm learning now to "learn from it and then let go of it." (OK, long way from that right now, it sounds good.)

Your therapist is not sending you out into the cold world alone. He knows you've built up inner strength and resilience AND you've learned to lean on other people, to trust them. This is so huge.

I think you are feeling out of balance because there will be a hole for a while. I'm guessing it is a process of filling that space with other nurturing folks.

You can do this. He has faith that you are ready. So do I...

And it isn't forever, you know. IF you find you need tune ups, you need a therapeutic perspective, not just support from friends and family, he'll be there for you. It isn't the same, I know. But it *is* something.

I'm glad you liked the garden idea. I just put some daisies in my yard too. They make me smile.
