You’re doing some things right, so give yourself credit. You moved away, adopted a dog, and are seeking counseling. I recognize your feelings, having had some similar to yours. For me, reframing some of these (toxic) thoughts can help. Instead of “they are only friendly because they need me for xxx” perhaps you can think “I feel they are insensitive and inattentive because they are not fully aware of how it makes me feel.” Your therapist can guide you, so please follow up and go. Lastly, but most importantly IMO, is your spiritual life. People will disappoint you over and over, but He never will. That relationship is the one that will sustain you for life including helping you to avoid the wrong people. Then you can relax and trust the reliable ones.
