Thank you for the responses, everybody. I really appreciate them.

I suppose I feel as if I am becoming dependent on my therapist, and that is upsetting to me, especially because I know that she can't fulfill all of the many needs and wishes that I would like her to fulfill. I'm not sure that I feel comfortable bringing this up with her. As a generally independent person, I find this very embarrassing.

I'm at a busy time in my life, and I'm not sure that it is worthwhile to keep delving deeper in therapy. What is the point of rehashing past memories and feelings? It feels good for an hour, but then I just feel worse overall.

Sometimes, I think that maybe I would reach out more to the people in my life if I weren't using my therapist as a crutch. But then, sometimes I think talking to my therapist is good practice on how to talk to the people in my life.

Therapy is so confusing. I'm starting to think that maybe I'd just be better off trying to live my life without analyzing and discussing it so much. I feel like, if I don't say good bye to my therapist now, then it is just going to become excruciatingly painful later on. How do I know if therapy is right for me? I have no idea how to discuss this with my therapist, even though I find her very trustworthy and well-intentioned.
