> I think the real truth is that the relationship built in therapy is often your relationship with your self and to your life. What we long for from our therapists is really what we long for in our life - if there was another to get it from, we most likely would. It is, as someone said, a huge risk, outside those walls.

**My T started talking about that towards the end. She also gave me a book, and part of the message she wrote inside said "Remember, the power you put on me and my presence in your life really belongs to you. It is your's." I think I understand what she's saying, in theory, but it's very hard to accept, especially since we didn't get to really explore that issue. Which, again, leads to the other point that's been stated and repeated many, many, many, times-- it's so important to talk about your feelings regarding your T and the therapeutic relationship itself, no matter how scary or awkward it feels.
