“When was the last time someone told you they were proud of you?”

I read today’s Daily Prompt in my imaginary therapist voice, to which my imaginary patient huffed and said, “Well, that’s a bit personal, isn’t it?” Rather touchy, that one. They haven’t made a lot of progress, perhaps because I made them up in my head just now. The therapist’s name is Violet, her patient’s is Mina, and later on they will form an unlikely bond —

(And thus, without entirely meaning to, I’ve managed to derail an opportunity for introspection. I should repent, but really, this — and reading other people’s responses — is much more fun.)
