I think I know what you are feeling, the need to need somebody to watch over you, protect you, feel connected with/to.

You are strong. You technically don't "need" to see him, but he has come to feel like a soft place to land when you are feeling stressed, upset, depressed, frustrated, etc. And it's good as well as comforting to have a soft place to land. And you share a rich history with him, better than any best friend.

Think of your expectations for each session. Think of it in terms of dating. Those intense falling in love feelings, those exciting tingling nerve exploding ones are so tangible at first. Then over time, they lessen as the relationship deepens. And every once in awhile they surge again to solidify the bond, but they never retain that initial energy. The relationship has moved into a different phase. A different dance.

He is your soft place, your legs of support on that stool.
