Always a Price to Pay
Me: There's always a physical price to pay every time I go out.
My Therapist: We should talk about your use of "always." Does it always happen?
Me: Sometimes the price is worth it, but it happens every time.
MT: It is really always?
Me: I understand what you're saying, but yes. It always happens.
MT: Track that, and we can discuss it next time.
Me: I can, and I have. But it always happens.
MT: I think you'll find it's not always.
Me: (Goes out. Pays Price.) I'll track that, and we can discuss it next time.
