to be honest, when i was developing a bit of a crush on my therapist, she started revealing more about her personal life to me.

once she revealed more about herself, it made me see that though i may have crush feelings, they are on this idealized superhuman person instead of who she really is. i realized that -- despite her enormous skill as a therapist, and her capacity to empower me in my own healing -- in real life she fights with _her_ girlfriend, struggles with health issues, and takes psych meds of her own.

now i do still feel somewhat affectionate towards her, but not as 'romantic.' to be honest, her revelations have helped me cut her some slack -- like when at our last session she was late -- and i've saved my romantic feelings for my real girlfriend.
