I can make the calculations. I can see the lines. I can predict the future, in 99% of any interaction, any situation, anything really.
But I still make the wrong choices. Always make the naive choices, because I think, “well what if I’m wrong?” Well if I’m wrong, I’d stand so much to gain. But making bad choices because you assume your reasoning might be off is the same thing as gambling.
I can blame most of my regrets on this fact. I’m addicted to gambling on humanity.
