If we're going to give a bunch legitimacy to the bad things we imagine might happen in the future, we might as well legitimize the good things we would love to see, right?
My question is, how do we give this kind of space to our hopes without getting so attached to them that it's devastating if they don't materialize? That's why we try to ignore them in the first place--we can't handle (or don't think we can handle) the loss.
But there must be a middle ground where we embrace hope without digging our claws into a particular outcome.
