RoadToNowhere

We never know where life will take us... we can't see the future. We can only see some possibilities... and the truth can even miss from those possible roads we "see". What lies in front of us is just a blured whater, we can only see down or up, left or right...

But where from this obsession with the future? Why can't we just live the present? There are people who do that... are they happier? Are people who live in the present happy (optimists), and those who try to understand the past and "see" the future unhappy (pessimists)? And if so... how is it better to live?

Is being a pessimist (as described earlier) a bad thing? Why? Because they think more, understand more, see more (good too, but mostly the bad sides of the road of life)?

(From this point of view) The "optimists" are kind of like the blind men... they walk around, being hapapy because they don’t see the real world, they have a world of their own, which they created so they can be happy... (they created their own happiness, but it is not entirely true). But what happens with them when they step into a big whole they didn’t expect? They fall in the water without being ready to get wet. I’m not saing this is necesarly a bad thing, because most of them adapt according to the new conditions of life... But I think I prefer being a pessimist...

So, being a pessimist is good too... and look how a "pessimist" can see the optimistic parts of this world we live in... :)
