Do we have to use the past verb in expressing imagination? Please look at this example.
Imagine; I want to own the same expensive objects and do the same things as my friends or neighbours, because I'm worried about seeming less important socially than they are. You know, It can be called something like jealousy or envy. Well, then I'm trying hard, find a high-paying job but it's back breaking too you know I'm spending all my time trying to get more money. After a while, I get what I want. You know I am loaded with money but I got no satisfaction at all . The way I see it this psychological problem is called "affluenza".
