Pre-birthday Depression 2.0

November 20, 2010

So, the 22.11 is coming around the corner and with it of course – my annual pre-birthday depression too.

Just Hope For The Best or Worst Case Scenario ?

August 3, 2010

No matter what kind of problem comes up in my life, I always try to have a plan for the “worst case scenario” in mind. For everything. If I don’t have it, I’m just unsettled.

I come up with (in my opinion) the best way of coping with the worst case scenario, so that even the worst case doesn’t seem so bad and unmanageable. After that I feel free to think of everything else, to hope for the best, there’s no fear of the “But what if it isn’t going to be alright?” anymore. Now I have an answer to that question and a better one than “It will be, you’ll see.” And what did I hear in the last situations like that?
