Hi there Kind Girl!

I know that with my first therapist, the only part that sticks with me is what he told me our last session. I asked for an honest evaluation, and boy did he give it. He said I was like a girl, stuck out in a river and people were throwing me a life saver but Iw as too busy asking questions like, "What if the line breaks?" What if they aren't strong enough to pull me in?", ect... And that comment will stick with me forever...

My current therapist I don't ever want to leave. He's taught me so much, about men, about life, just about everything in general. But, I will be moving from this horrid town in about a year. So, I know that our time will be over then.

I told him once, if I moved an hour away and still needed therapy, I would drive to see him. He said that was fine.

I thik therapy is over once you and your therapist decide that you have become the person you really want ot be. After you have set goals (have you set goals??) and reached those goals, assuming nothing else has come up, it's time to move on. Of ocurse, your therapist's voice will always be in your head. And that's what's so wonderful about it. It's like you have a piece of that person still guiding you..
