I think it's painful by necessity. You aren't doing anything wrong.
When we go home as kids who have been on our own, it doesn't feel the same as when we lived there. We view our parents from a bit of distance. When we see friends we haven't seen for a while, it's not the same as seeing them all the time. We've grown and they've grown.
I expect that's all he means. Just as once a week therapy and twice a week therapy are different, and once a month and once a week therapy are different, therapy as needed after termination is different. You won't view him in just the same way, because he won't have just the same role in your life. You'll have grown and developed some distance.
It stinks. :( I'm sorry.
