I want to clarify that my last suggestion doesn't mean I think it's wrong to be attached or stay attached. I do think therapists play a unique role that can't and shouldn't be filled by others. You can't keep friends if you use them as a therapist. Your significant other shouldn't be your therapist. And definitely your kids shouldn't. I think ongoing therapy is helpful to some people, and that they function better with than without. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong, and probably a lot right, with being attached to that therapist. And needing him/her.

It was just an acknowledgement that sometimes we really do want to leave, or want to try to leave. And are afraid to do it. In those cases, time can help.
