You get another one and start the same cycle all over again?

Same as above. It was absolutely heartbreaking and I grieved for her as if she had actually died. However, it's been 3 years now and I can say it gets easier. I probably wouldn't have believed that when the hurt was so fresh, though. So sorry for your loss.

Yes, I found another T but I'm seeing her less frequently, no contact between sessions, and trying to not get attached in any way. I want help but I don't want to go through that heartbreak again. I'm trying to protect myself in the relationship, so I have no idea if therapy will work this way or not. My former T did so much for me and I grew so much, but her leaving me almost killed me. Kit

Yeah I understand! I feel the same way, I have a few sessions left, but I honestly don't think I can go through it again. It may be alcohol fuelled right now but I honestly don't get it all, I really trusted this person to not let me down like everyone else, and she's proved me right, ppl are not to be trustworthy so what's the point of it all

I wish I knew. I'm depressed myself at the moment, so it's hard to see that "silver lining." I do think that people can be trustworthy generally and yet still let us down. I had a friend let me down in a big way on Monday and it took a couple of days to get over it but I'm starting to. I wish I could be more positive about what the point is. I'm sure there is one. I think there's a chance of success at therapy and that's what I am hopeful for. Kit

I'm sorry your friend let u down, I think sometimes it's not done purposely but it still hurts right! I hope you can find a way with therapy and moving forward, I think partly it's the wanting to move forward, maybe I don't really want to anymore. Just kinda seems pointless for me.
I can see how therapy works for people, I really can. I just think some people (myself) it seems unfixable so I don't see the point in trying anymore, 1 step toward, 2 back kinda thing. I wish you all the best though
