Emotionally dependent, on its own, means to me that my mood, my emotions, depend on how my relationship with my therapist is. And if I'm having a bad relationship with him (we're going back to the past here) then I feel bad about myself, and I don't like feeling bad about myself so then I go out to change that by trying to change the relationship. Now I'm dependent. I can't let go of that relationship; it defines me.
Emotional trust means that no matter what I perceive the relationship to be, I believe that there is enough respect and caring that I don't need to prove anything; I will be seen as who I really am, and still be cared for. Now I'm not dependent; I'm just trusting.
Hmmm. What did I just say? In any case, they go together in a framework of dependency, in a way, because if I trust and my trust is broken, suddeny I feel bad about myself, and I'm dependent.
