Keep it simple

I am 55 and single.

Being single or “being alone” is not a bad thing. Generally looking, I'm anti-social and actually I enjoy being alone. At present, I'm really myself. I'm not spending so much time processing the thoughts and feelings of others. Being alone is the best time to turn my focus on what I really want...

No hope that something better will come

This morning, I did financial planning for the end of this year and a perspective for the next year. I will be paying of my line of credit debt for the entire 2021. Nothing better will come in 2021, the great reset and getting old, sucks big way. Whoever told you that with age you will become smarter lied to you. Fuck it. You were young and stupid and then you are not young anymore.

I really don't like empty hopes. Overly optimistic people have no clue how the real world works. They are totally fake, soft and weak-minded. They stick their heads in the sand and ignore reality thinking happy thoughts while doing nothing.

On another hand, I am not a pessimist either. I don't expect only bad outcomes, I am not gloomy, joyless and unhopeful. Well, scratch unhopeful. Although I went through so many disappointments, I don't expect the misfortune in my future.

I'm neither a pessimist nor an optimist, I am a realist

I have no clue if being a realist is something good to acquire, but I ended up here, in the middle of this shit. What does it mean to be a realist anyway?

Being realistic is not downplaying the good things in life and trying to see the bad as inevitable. I try to make no prejudice for what people believe and how they behave, I try to be impartial, with no judgments. Seldom I succeed.

The attitude is the thing. I'm a realist, and I'm here to set the record straight. Forget those glasses that can be half empty or half full, the glass could be filled to the brim or emptied to the last drop, it depends how thirsty you are, that’s how unpredictable life is. I make sense of the world, and that’s why I have advantage over general population.

We live on the planet where everything get spoiled

I'm going to tell you a small secret of life. Things in life tend to go their own way just up to the certain point and then a little twist happen and things start to deteriorate and again events go until next little twist. In the end, if nothing is done, the result of what was planned became quite different.

Take for example musical scale. The frequencies of vibration of the seven notes of the octave are: Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Si. In this scale, there are 5 “whole tones”, and two smaller tones, so called half-tones Mi-Fa and Si-Do. It is natural representation that things do not go straight and that some other work needs to be done in order to achieve things as they are planned.

In any work where you wish certain outcome you have to recognize the "twists" and put additional effort. Let’s be honest; it’s great to always have a cheerful outlook, but it’s downright stupid to think that’s the only possible outcome. Be prepared for anything.

I don’t trust people

I don't trust anyone. Once upon a time I did that and it turned out to be the one of my biggest disappointment of my life.

Do you think it’s so cute when you meet someone who automatically trusts everyone and believes everyone is full of kindness? Or do you think they’re incredibly naive? Many of you started out that way, until you discovered that not everyone is good inside and that you should have higher standards for who you trust, because some people will destroy you mercilessly to achieve their own agendas.

I don't believe in love

When I meet someone I'm skeptical, open just to the point, it’s not because I honestly believe that every single woman in the world wants to take advantage of me. It’s because I know that a certain percentage of them do, and I want to carefully avoid them.

Everyone has had such people in their life, those persons who call you and want to hang out with you, find out secrets about you, and blabs them all over town. I'm naturally careful about who I let into my life, so I'm on the lookout for sketchy behavior.

It drives me crazy when people tell me that I shouldn’t be so negative or untrusting. Oh, do you want me to change myself? I am being realistic about life and the future, and I know that it helps me get through each day with as few complications as possible.

... keep it simple as possible. 😎
