Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, it's good to hear from you!
I think in your situation, you are looking for something from your therapist that is important to you. Think about what you are asking her to do for you. You want sympathy and you want her to care. And there is a certain way you want her to express this to you. When you think about that, consider the void you want her to fill for you. There is something you need that you feel she can provide.
What you are experiencing is common in therapy. Most people in therapy have deep needs that are unmet by those in their lives. In therapy, people have a chance to have someone listen to them and they naturally want the therapist to be there for them. Here is someone who finally cares. And it is easy to want more from them.
This is something that you need to explore with her. She needs to understand how you feel. Focus on what you are needing and other ways you can get this need met in your life. Your therapist is there to help you, and she should care. But she won't always be there. So helping you build supports in your life that you can go to and people you can trust is important.
