Because I think it will make it easier for me to work on myself if my therapist weren't so careful. :)

Therapy has stages. My therapist allows me to set the course of when to leave one stage and enter the next. I am ready to enter the next stage.

It *is* about me. It marks growth on my part, and an increased willingness to accept more than I was previously willing to accept since in general there is a time lag between what I realize about myself and what he realizes about me.

And in my therapy, although the goal is to help me, the help is provided by the relationship. The relationship involves two people, not one, and it involves growth and change on my part, and on his part too, and on the part of the third party in the room - the relationship.

I realize that is not true of all therapy, but it is true of my therapy.

I just need to figure out how to convey that properly to him.
