I suppose I was trying to keep in mind that I'm in therapy primarily for anxiety, and then some later issues that crop up.

And that to some extent, fighting to relationship is something I already knew how to do, although the number of people I've chosen to do it with are, well, maybe three or four in my entire life. Usually I don't have the courage, or the faith in the other person, or the feeling that the level of potential intimacy is there to make fighting to relationship a good rather than an intrusive thing. And of course, I never did it as consciously as I have done it in therapy, where what you're doing is made part of the conversation.

So I'm acknowledging that this is perhaps not what I was primarily in therapy for, and that it is maybe more the method to obtain the therapy I needed than the purpose of the therapy, but that frankly it's rewarding and enjoyable in itself.

I think maybe I did go into therapy thinking that my therapist could fix me, but my therapist soon set me to rights on my own obligations. :)
