Topic: Therapist... need to get off my mind

Tonya started this discussion 5 years ago #2,774

I dont know whhy but I am still going crazy over thi. I saw another therapist for the 1st time today,...I still cant stop thinking about my previous therapist.. I ended up emailing him recently and he has emailed me back..I just want to write him and ask if i can see him again but I know its not a good thing to do... I just keep thinking if I was prettier, sexier or more persuasive that we would have hooked up...sounds so dumb to say..I dont know why I am going through this

Hey Tonya, I think it's pretty normal to still have big feelings about this. So much emotional stuff gets stirred up in therapy, when we trust them so much. It will take time to sort out what happened, and what it means for you, and how come sex is the thing that makes you feel like you are 'good enough'. But if you ask to see him again you put yourself in a pretty no-win situation. Either he says no (which would feel like rejection) or he says yes, and your heart is back on the line with someone who has proven he doesn't have his own shit together enough to treat you right. So - maybe just hang in there for a while and see what happens with the new therapist. Focus on that if you can, but know that you're hurt for good reasons, and it's okay if it takes time to recover.
