Passage

 

A man spoke to his doctor about a series of dreams he was having recently. ?This is going

 

to seem silly,? the man said, ?but in the dreams I deal with difficult situations simply by

 

saying ?I?m a little guy?. As soon as I say these words, everyone seems to understand and

 

doesn?t bother me anymore. For example, in one dream I have an employee named

 

Grady, whom I have to fire because my boss orders me to do it. Grady is a good friend of

 

mine and I dread what I have to do. When Grady comes into my office, I say, ?I?m sorry,

 

you?re fired.? Then I say, ?I can?t help it. I?m a little guy.? Grady nodes at me gently as if

 

he feels sympathy for me, and says, ?That?s all right. I understand.? In other dreams I?m

 

wearing a sign that says ?Little Guy.? When people see this, they treat me with great

 

kindness. Salesclerks are polite and friendly. The man behind the meat counter gives me a

 

good cut of steak. The dentist doesn?t find anything wrong with my teeth; he even feels

 

proud of me and doesn?t charge me anything. When I get on the train at night somebody

 

always gives me a seat. My wife listens to my problems but doesn?t expect me to listen to

 


 

hers. My little daughter doesn?t ask me to play with her when I?m tired. Panhandlers on

 

the street don?t bother me-in fact sometimes they give me money.?

 

The doctor said, ?Your dreams are basically normal. You?re having fantasies we probably

 

all have at times. In periods of stress, when there are a lot of responsibilities on your

 

shoulders, we want to be like little children again. We want, as your dream puts it, to be

 

little guys. We want everybody to automatically understand and to be good to us and not

 

to blame us for anything we do. We want unconditional love. Unfortunately, we can only

 

dream about being ?little guys.? In real life we have to take on things alone. No one is

 

going to give us special treatment. I, for example, am now going to charge you for your

 

visit today.?
