Exactly. But what do you want him to say?

It may be one of those cases where you don't say much - like when one of your kids is suddenly brushing their teeth without reminders, because if you do, they'll get put out about it. You just note it and are glad for the change. Your therapist sees the changes, but isn't saying much. We humans tend to be a bit stubborn about doing what is actually good for us when it is someone else's idea.

You sound like you might want to be pushed - do you know about what? If you can define what you want him to be more aggressive about, that would probably help. But I think he is already pretty honest with you and I don't think he is going to be anymore blunt than he already is. Which makes him a nice guy and a good therapist.
