My therapist complimented me today.

Toward the end of the session I was talking about how I was trying to figure out whether or not i should try buying a place to live. Now part of the problem is the north west corner of pasadena, is where all the non-"white" people live. Not suprprisingly housing prices there are more afordable, which makes it tempting to go and buy property.

But then I worry that I'd be driving up the prices for those less fortunate and end up contributing to the gentrification of pasadena.

She thought it rather positive that I was trying to be aware of the consequences of my actions in society.

On the down side trying to make sure that affordable housing exists is another big issue that society needs to deal with.

as you are someone who considers the ramifications of your actions carefully, this is a difficult and knotty thing to unwind

The worst part is occasionaly I get stuck in the if I do A there will be these unforunate consequences if I don't do A there will be these other unfortunate conclusions. It's a pretty frustrating situation for me.
