Have you ever had a desire or a dream, and you wanted to share it with someone in your family or maybe your best friends? And you were hoping for some support, but were instead told to "be realistic"? Ouch. Friends and family usually mean well, but nonetheless, it can still make you feel lousy inside. And as is often the case, it's not always about WHAT you say, but HOW you say it. Will Smith has a great quote about being "realistic".
