This was a tweet by Mick Cooper, who is a psychologist and professor at a university.
This is a subject many don’t want to raise. But, I will.
Frankly, I cannot trust anyone who I do not believe actually genuinely cares about me. And unless they make that it very clear they do, that barrier will always be there.
Therapists, have their own physical and emotional boundaries and they need them. And that’s okay. But, this does not help complex trauma survivors, who already have such deep trust wounds.
I had some kind of bond with my therapist. And I know I have forced myself to no longer have this, for several reasons. I have forced myself to disconnect from that, and issues that arose, have led to that.
I don’t want to be bonding with anyone, who could easily ditch me, has no genuine emotions for me, and is someone I cannot rely on, because of this.
I’ve been hurt by far too many people, who I thought cared and yet did not.
I learned my lesson, and it is not a mistake I ever intend to make again.
