To quote the hard-boiled Max Payne: 'There are no choices. Nothing but a straight line. The illusion comes afterwards, when you ask 'Why me?' and 'What if?'. When you look back and see the branches, like a pruned bonsai tree, or forked lightning. If you had done something differently, it wouldn't be you. It would be someone else looking back, asking a different set of questions.'
There was a period in my life when I was constantly asking myself: 'what if I had done this or said that?' I would even ask: 'why did I say this, why did I do this?'. Now I realise this is who I am. Everything I ever did or said is part of who I am. Even when I contradict myself or do something that is out of character, it is still me. It is just a different facet of me.
What about you guys? Do you take the time to analyse your actions or do you simply go with the flow taking the good with the bad?
