I get that theoretically but then it's like if it's simplified to just a transaction of money for selfishness then it's easy on his side to get fed up with the arrangement and end it. So it's not actually ok at all.It's not about selfishness or doing the right thing.
He is a therapist. It is not your job to take care of him or protect him. It's up to him to look after himself.
Therapy is perhaps the only place anywhere that is totally about you. That is not being selfish. That's what therapy is for and what it's designed to be.
I guess that makes sense.And with OCD, two common feelings are guilt and doubt. And so it's easy for the brain to feel the guilt and then stay stuck on a reason/rationale to feel guilty. Like how depressed people will rationalize their depression.
