That's a phrase I use a lot. Not just with my therapist though. I think attachment to others is what keeps me tethered to the earth. It's not a bad analogy because of my dissociative tendencies. Life is sometimes so choppy and disconnected. It's my attachment to others that provides a thread that holds it all together.

It just happens that my therapist is one of my main, and few, attachments.

And of course, he's my safe harbor. That makes for a lot of attachment right there.
