I'm sure there's some brilliant psychoanalyzing to be done about that, but I'm choosing to leave it alone.
Can't see a future? Can't let yourself have - or admit to- a desire for something or someone?
One way of looking at the matter posits that, if one can't see or envision -that is- plan for a future- one will simply repeat the past.
How about this not so brilliant question?
Who's the person from your past who told you- by example or word- that you don't deserve it? That you shouldn't bother? That your crown is in heaven so why bother? Our people don't do that sort of thing etc etc.
I'm sure you can come up with something Matt.
