I certainly understand your desire to keep your "safety". I wish it was 6 months from now and I had a safe place.

I do not think that you should jeopardize that.

I guess that I see my therapist more like a teacher or coach or fitness trainer. I figure that he has some knowledge that I could use. I also think that he can see things more objectively than I can. He's working for what is best for me (and he is literally working *for* me). If I don't like what he's doing I can tell him, but I really should listen carefully to what he says because I may know more about me, but he knows more about the rest of the world.

I see us as a team.

Sometimes I think a therapist can push too hard. But I think that sometimes when we think they are pushing too hard, they are really doing it in our best interests. Reminds me of convincing my kids to get their shots - it *does* hurt, but the benefits are worth the pain.

I'll stop talking now. If I've been too pushy please chalk it up to vacation fever.
