Your dreams will not come true

A woman told her therapist, “I just feel like I’m destined to do something great.”

The therapist chuckled: “Of course you do. You’re an American. Every American feels like she’s destined to do something great.”

Every American can’t be great, by definition.

(Most of) your dreams will not come true, no matter how much you believe in yourself, no matter how high your expectations, no matter how hard you squint your eyes when you “manifest your reality,” and no matter how many “stretch goals” you set for yourself.

I’m grateful for Martin Luther King Jr’s dream, but I thank God that your dreams will not come true, because your dreams are selfish, unenlightened, downright stupid hogwash.
