Thanks @TheVorticon . Just wanted to add that those relationships with therapists can get really messed up, just as much if not more than others. I can relate to the title of your thread and write a book on it with my experiences and psychs. I’m so much better at that one now but it’s taken so much time to get to a place of feeling ok and being in a good place about the therapeutic relationship. I think I get better where you are coming from. And yes it’s really complicated and messy.
Good luck with it.
