I’m taking an auditing and assurance class and one of the things we’ve been discussing this week is fraud but this post has nothing to do with that but something one of my classmates said that just struck me as sad

When I look back on all my dreams as a child and compare them to my realities now I realize that my dreams were not in line with what was actually possible.  However I have chosen to adjust my dreams rather then commit fraud

I wonder why she had to adjust her dreams, why would her dreams have the potential to commit fraud? One shouldn’t have to adjust their dreams. It just seemed so sad to me that someone would adjust their dreams.
