futility.

recently, as written in blog entries previously, i've wondered about the choices i've made and if they were the "right" or "wrong" ones.  although agonizing over each one won't resolve any of them in the end and serves as a somewhat pointless intellectual exercise, as i've said before, it may be somewhat beneficial for the future to prevent myself from making the wrong choices.

but something has been bothering me now, thinking over it again.  something that's driving me crazy.

what i can't seem to accept is that whenever i run every scenario in my super duper complex alternate universe scenario simulator (that takes place in my brain, that is), every choice i make would be the wrong one.  that the concept of choice making is indeed futile.

jumping to judgment over past decisions and rushing to label them 'right' or 'wrong' assumes that those decisions have no effect on your life other than what you have experienced so far. If you're foolish enough to believe that, keep dreaming in your alternate universes, but it's probably best to wait a bit longer before declaring your life a success or failure.
