No, not all yours. I understand and agree.

I'm not altogether sure it's a bad thing. I'm torn about that. I often say that reduced expectations are the key to happiness. I probably should amend that to low expectations with high standards are the key to happiness. We spend so much of our time banging our heads against walls trying to get things from people that they just aren't willing or able to give. It is so much less painful to just recognize it and accept what they can give or move on.

I do trust my therapist. I trust him completely. I trust him to be the person I think he is, and that includes both good and bad things. I trust him to want the best for me. I trust him to listen and try to understand. I trust him not to try hard not to lie to me. I trust him to go out of his way to see me or call me when I need him, although I also trust him to forget to call me when promised at least half the time if more than a day lapses between promise and fulfillment. I trust him to be sleepy sometimes in session. I trust him to be occasionally thoughtless. I trust him to admit to his thoughtlessness and apologize for it. I trust all of those things, good and bad.

Whatever reasons I might have for what I do, I do trust him.
