taking a step back and looking at life in general

Whenever we encounter a crazy and grimy person on the streets who talk to himself or shout at noone in particular, we immediately distance ourselves. That is the normal and expected reaction. We know that this person's mind is unstable, he may hurt us when we get too close because he is unpredictable.
Unpredictability. That is what most people avoid. Great risks are to be taken when investing in some product that fluctuates with the market, the government. Great risks are to be taken when entering into a company without any knowledge of the system. Great risks are to be taken when committing to a relationship which could end sooner or later.
Sometimes, if these great risks were not taken, regret could be the result. Sometimes, if these great risks were taken, sorrow could be the result. Still, it's all in our freewill and willingness to accept consequences. It's like they say, in the attitude. In the mental and emotional capability, or else we turn into a crazy and grimy person on the streets who talk to ourselves or shout at noone in particular. ;o)
