"Just because he isn't you doesn't mean he doesn't know how much work you can handle. I've just you and I can tell you don't like spending much time thinking about feelings. You're reluctance to be here says that much. Don't you think someone you share your life with would be able to see you better than you can, at least some of the time? After all they're looking at you from the outside, no inner thoughts and feelings to consider, just the evidence."

Dr. Cromwell leaned forward on her desk, "And a law career is supposed to be hard at first... but jobs are interesting in that the job itself is rarely what makes us upset. Most of the time its other factors that pile up and end up with us 'practically crying after work one day.' Works tends to be that one extra bit of stress, the straw the broke the camels back if you will. There can be complications at work or at home, but the actual tasks of the job aren't what cause us unhappiness. A man who lifts boxes all day isn't going to be unhappy because he lifts boxes. He's going to be unhappy because his wife left him or because he wants to be at the beach or the carnival and box lifting suddenly seems less worthwhile. But lifting those boxes, filling out paperwork, meeting with clients, that's just the job. There's no emotions to those tasks. What makes a job stressful is when other emotions get tacked onto an neutral task. What do you think of that?"
