Your t's advice is very wise. I like the visual of being along side them in their pain ... I think that's right. My t reminded me of the same today, that she (my sister) is not my responsibility. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother (+ a brother that recently died in June). A big family. There is a ton of fall-out from my brother's death. I'm doing good with that. Thank goodness for my therapist. I think my feet are firmly planted on the ground. Now what?

Learning to accept that people are there for you and can be counted on ... that's hard for me. It isn't unique to my relationship with my therapist (I think Dinah asked that). I worry if I say or do the wrong thing, people will no longer like me and write me off completely.

I think that's why my relationship with my therapist may seem rocky on this board. I take one thought of hers (that I don't like) and run with that. Because "that" is more comfortable than the possibility that she really likes me (which she has told me time and time again).

Thank you muffled for asking. It feels good to be thought of and feels good to be writing all my feelings out. It helps me. Thank you.
