My therapist has this misapprehension that I am very respectful of the boundaries. Just because I don't call him that often after hours, or show up at his doorstep.

I pointed out to him the other day that I'm actually constantly pushing the boundaries. They're just the boundaries within the room. I push him to be real with me. I push him to have real feelings about me. I push him about how he's feeling, if I can detect it. I push him to care about me. I push him to acknowledge a real relationship. I push and pull and wheedle him to care.

I'm not sure if he understood, but he said something like "Those are ok boundaries to push."

I tend to think I push boundaries more than any client on earth.
