I Just Broke Up with My Massage Therapist
Do you feel like you need to stay loyal to your massage therapist, your hair dresser, or your doctor?
I have a confession to make. I just broke up with my massage therapist. Even worse, I cheated on her with another massage therapist. Then I left her for my new masseur. I feel so disloyal.
Do you ever feel guilty for wanting to change doctors, physio therapists, hair dressers, or any other professional? Especially if you have been with them for a long time, and you don’t have a really good reason for wanting to make the change.
We develop an odd sort of relationship with these people. We share some of our most intimate moments – like the doctor who delivered my babies, and they know way too much about us. I see my hairdresser for about an hour and a half every eight weeks, but she is the only person who knows what colour my hair really is.
I had been with my massage therapist for an hour once or twice a month for at least five years. But then a friend of mine got her certification as a registered massage therapist, and I thought I should give her a try. She was very good, had more time slots available, and charged less, but I still felt guilty telling my former therapist.
Is this weird?
