Or you could just aim for better.
Zoey: How am I supposed to focus on my own issues when the entire waiting room just sang to me? Do you believe a word I’m saying?
Dr. Tesoro: It doesn’t matter what I believe. People come in here with all kinds of issues.
Zoey: I feel like I’m totally drowning recently between my work and my family, my relationship, my powers, all the TV shows I have to watch.
Dr. Tesoro: One thing at a time. You said you broke up with Max because you could hear his thoughts, but he couldn’t hear yours. Now you’re in a relationship with Simon, and he’s not aware of your secret at all.
Zoey: If he knew that I used his heart song to connect and forge this grief bond, it would be game over.
Dr. Tesoro: All right, if you can’t get rid of your gift, maybe you need to focus on things you can control. Is there any area of your life that you feel that you can put more energy into?
Zoey: Simon, definitely Simon. I have been not so awesome to him lately.
Dr. Tesoro: OK, do you think working on things with him is a manageable goal until our next session?
Zoey: Absolutely, yeah, I’m gonna show Simon I can be the best girlfriend in the entire world.
