> My friends (so many here) know how often I want to run from therapy, how hard they have pushed me to "just tell him" and how darn needy I get.

But you don't run, you do tell and you acknowledge your neediness. That is brave - you "feel the fear and do it anyways."

> And the other major, MAJOR thing to not forget, is that I am absolutely blessed to be able to see my therapist 4 days a week. I don't know how anyone opens themselves up to all the hurt and pain and longings if they have to wait a week or two weeks between sessions.

OK. That is very interesting. You believe that the reason you are able to do the work you are doing is because you go so frequently? Do you think it is possible for someone to be as close to their therapist/do such intense work going only once or twice a week? Or is almost daily contact necessary to foster the sense of trust needed to do deep work with trauma?

> he calls if he thinks I might be having a hard time and he reaches out to me, he doesn't just wait for me to reach out and then react.

Do you think that reaching out towards you has made it easier for you to reach back? Many therapists won't do that, believing it interferes with the patient's autonomy.
