In this world, there are many kinds of people. There is the kind who chooses to think the best of every one and everything. These are the people who would think there is a bed of roses for you, if only you choose to believe. And then there’s the kind who chooses to think the worst of every one and everything. These are the people who would think that in the bed of roses, there are thousands and thousands of thorns. So if you’re not careful, you would definitely be pricked.
I think the former are definitely gonna be a happier group of people. Yes, they may be naive, or even gullible, but going through life preparing for the absolute worst is exhausting. I should know.
And yet, I think the latter group has their own standpoint too. It helps to prevent hurt and disappointment, because when you already expect the worst, anything else is going to be a pleasant surprise.
I am prepared for the worst. I have to be strong, because if I don’t be, no one will be there to catch me when I fall. No matter what any one says, when it comes down to it, you would really just have yourself to look after yourself. Promises will be for naught, apologies will do nothing when you’re already mortally wounded.
Cynical? Yes. Pessimistic? Yes. Realistic? Definitely.
If things work out, great. Realistically, it doesn’t look too good. But I am prepared for it. When it comes down to the line, I know I’ve got my own back, and that’s all I can hope for now.
