I'm so happy for you.

You're the second person who has spoken to me very recently about this very phenomenon. And I think it's sooo true.

I think it *is* possible to go to therapy for years, feel an intense connection, and yet stagnate or even get and stay worse. I think it's possible to flounder desperately in a morass of feelings. Boundaries might not be appropriate (in one direction or another), empathy and attunement might be off. Or maybe the therapist doesn't know what to do, or brings his own issues to therapy, or just is incapable of providing a strong enough guide on the path.

I think that it's wise every once in a while to step back and assess things. Of course, when you are enmeshed in a relationship, finding the detachment necessary might not be possible. :(
