sometimes i think it is. like sometimes we don’t like to think of other consequences that may come when we do this or when we do that and we tend to be optimistic. we tend to neglect or remove from our minds that bad things may happen.

we deviate from reality to go to what we envision when we are overly optimistic. the tendency, i think, is that we create another world wherein we minimize the bad things and overstate the good things to happen. while this is sometimes good, it is not always good because what we want is not always what is or what is supposed to be.

that’s just what i think.
i used ‘we’ by the way. :))
