Hi, Dr. Is there a point where it’s okay to just say, “Enough. I’m never going to get any better than this.” I’ve been in therapy for 14 years with one 4 month break. I’m still carrying the wounds inflicted on me from babyhood until I finally left my FOO (family of origin). I’ve asked my therapist about quitting therapy but have been advised against it. Must I remain in therapy for the rest of my life?
