I think the ability to hold on to that goodness stretches as it begins to feel more a stable part of your life, and the sad times become less.
But there may be some natural grieving involved for what you now know is possible, but didn't have before.
Are there any activities that can help you connect between sessions? Writing letters to your therapist, or keeping a journal? Maybe meditation?
Or you could accept the sadness and figure out what you really do need to grieve, if you think that would be helpful.
I'm sorry you're feeling sad.
