Too Many Variables

I guess we can't wonder what if because by saying yes or no choosing one over the other will cause a different chains of events that we can't predict.  For example if I had not join the ARMY would I have the job that I have now? Probably not.  would I be happier? I don't now.  If I had completed my training as a soldier? would I still be alive? Probably not. Would I have become an alcoholic? I am sure. Would I be happier? I don't know.

Anyway I continue to wonder what if all the time because, I have not let go of the past.

But what if it's too hard to let go of the past? Jc2009 was right to say that right now is the result of yesterday. I for myself have many hang-ups in life. I cannot help myself not to dwell on the past...Too bad for me :(

does not have to be. you have no choice but to walk forward and figure out what you like. what you like for you. your preferences, not hers. <br />

What do you want? Go after that. you will get better. make it about you. I know it is easier said than done, but I am living it right now. I was so far down and now, in the last two months have been going after what I want. <br />

Awesome feeling. uplifting. you need uplifting. Believe me its true. It is really working for me

Thank you for your comment. You are right with the right now but for me the right now is a result of yesterday.

I dont often wonder "what if's", but I struggle every moment with "what now"
