(((gg))),

The subject of your post struck me. It's something my T and I have been talking about for the last three sessions. He said that for me there always seems to be an element of loss associated with attachment. I think the closer I get, the more I fear a potential - or in the case of therapy, the inevitable - loss. So, no matter how good or right the attachment feels, the flip side is so terribly painful for me. And there's almost a constant worry. So, I rarely let myself get "too" attached. But now, I feel like I'm missing out on the good part. Is it worth it at the cost of the pain? Sometimes I think it is.

Sigh. Sorry for the rambling. I hope we're talking about the same thing.

In any case, I wish it wasn't so hard, too.

Hugs,
Laurie
