It seems like it's more than just being afraid I'll drift away from therapy.

I do know, and it's long been his position, that I can come for as long as I want and for as often as I want. Even if I get better, and even if I don't need him.

This has something somehow to do with me. With a me that needs him being a different thing than a me that doesn't need him. That something in me will be different if I don't need him, and I think that I'll be losing more than I gain if I replace that something with not needing.

Does dependence itself, without regard to the results of the dependence, have a value that is usually unrecognized?

A dependent person and a not dependent person are different. Are there any ways in which a dependent person is better off?

By dependent, I don't really mean in this case interdependent. Because generally it's considered ok to want to be with someone even if you don't need to.

But dependence itself as a good thing?

I don't want to give up being dependent because _____.

My brain hurts and I feel a bit uneasy about discussing this. :(
