    i was in a recent therapy relationship with a therapist that i got very close to, 4years we were together. then he finished he got his docterate and went on to another job. we said our good byes and everything but it didn’t seem like the end for me. i grieved and fell apart so bad that i ended up in the state hospital. it has been 2 1/2 years and i am still grieving. i want to stop. how can I? i need help. i am seeing a new therapist that is great, and is helping me through this. she even thinks that my continued grieving is detrimental to my continued therapy….so how can i stop grieving someone that i loved so much?

    Try to find a way to hold his memory within you…and then let him go. Think of the positive things you gained from your relationship and try to live those feelings by applying it in your life. Find the joy in what you had. Remember and cherish that. Know that the love you feel for him is part of you and speaks to your potential. Find interests and keep busy. Surround yourself with many different people and try to make new friends. Welcome new experiences. Think of what needs he was meeting and find ways to meet those needs outside of the therapy room. Don’t forget, but try not to let yourself be comsumed by grief either. Good luck to you.
