I understand.

You know that he answered appropriately for a therapist, but there were also all sorts of dreams and hopes that answering appropriately as a therapist sort of crushed. As long as you didn't bring it up, you didn't need to hear the final answer and you can dream. And dreams are pretty nice. That's why I shell out a dollar a week for the lottery. I'm paying to dream, not to win the lottery.

But that's what therapy's for. As you talk it out with him, you can come to entertain new and achievable dreams. And you can learn ways to change the old patterns that might contribute to everything good in your life ending.

Although, honestly, everything good in everyone's life ends eventually. You just hope that eventually is a long way away. People move, people die, physical and cognitive abilities slip. And I'm not flexible enough to develop new dreams along the way, but I hope you can learn to be.
