On Being A Realist
Some people would call me a pessimist, but I think I’m more often a realist. I’ve found that in life there are very few Win-Win situations. Maybe it’s because I don’t believe in God or an eternal life after death. Maybe it’s because I’ve been lied to by politicians and clergy. Maybe it’s the rampant hypocrisy that we see in the news every day. Things simply aren’t black and white. Things we believe to be white are often black and eventually turn gray in the end.
It is sad when one distrusts situations that could become magic, but that’s me and I don’t really feel bad about it. In fact it is sometimes amusing.
