define closeness


a person that knows you completely inside and out

understands your beliefs, your values, your worldview, your personality, your needs, your pathologies, your inhibitions, just the way you completely work........

i don't know if this is realistic or not........

i don't know if a relationship could evolve this deeply

see this what happens when i work longterm with two/three extraordinary therapists for 3 and 2 years each.

any thoughts?

To me, someone that's close to me doesn't necessarily agree or see my point of view all the time but accepts me where I am, no matter what I'm going through and doesn't judge me.

I don't think that anyone can truly understand anyone that totally unless you're the same person but it can come close if you're lucky. I have 2 people that I consider to be my closest friends of my life and even they don't get me all the time. I love them both dearly and wouldn't trade them for anything on earth though.

This is fundamental for me. I'm on cloud 9 around people like that.
