(or Do I Stay or Do I Go?)
Sometimes I really wish my therapist would just fire me.
Then she can give my spot to someone else.
Someone who will pay her 100-300% more than I can pay.
Someone for whom one, or even two, 45-minute sessions a week will be enough.
Someone who doesn’t need to push past that boundary of time over and over and over again.
Someone whose emotions can be contained inside the therapeutic frame.
Someone who doesn’t need more than any reasonable therapist can be expected to give.
Someone who shows up to session willing and able to talk.
Someone who is able to take a professional’s advice.
Someone who wants more out of life.
