I think the decision is ultimately yours--it is a political one, as I see it. For myself, my button's were pushed when I saw my pdoc /T arrive in a new top of the line lexus. I finally told him that I was disappointed. I'd have hoped he would drive a prius or something. We had a good talk--and it was helpful for me. I'm sticking with him because the therapy is good. Also he has not revealed any private causes that I would object to--and there would be a number that would perhaps lead me to respect him less. (I also have some class issues, growing up poor on the East Coast.)

Every so often he reminds me not to focus on the differences that appear to me on the outside--something I tend to do.

I'm another against conspicuous consumption, yet like Dinah, I can find it endearing--I think people want comfort and well....we all have ways to find it.



any more thoughts on this?
