Thanks for your post, Shorte. You're right, there is something very healing about knowing your therapist likes you so much that she'd be willing to be friends. Most therapists wouldn't tell a client that though unless the situation was such that it made sense to say it. So who knows, maybe your therapist feels the same way but there's no good reason to bring it up since it's not a possibility right now anyway. I know that for me, I could not have done all the work I did this past year with my therapist if I had thought that our relationship would end after a year. So it's a true blessing that we talked about becoming friends, because in that way I knew that when the end would approach, I'd have a choice about continuing our relationship...it gave me the trust and safety to do the work throughout the year. With my abandonment issues, I never could have stuck with her knowing it would all end after a year.

Change is hard, yes that's about the understatement of the year!

I HATE CHANGE.
