    You certainly can’t argue with that quote. In my experience we are experts at unnecessarily complicating our own lives.

      Yes I agree. Thank you. It’s a shame we don’t stand back at that moment to think about how we could handle things differently.

      I believe the reason is ego. When the ego talks, we continue to complicate matters further.

    Yes, life is complicated and people are suffering from internal anguish because of it. And the toll on the ego leads to more complications, especially if you buy whatever people are selling.

    The good news is that we make the wrong choices to get to the right places sometimes.

      Thanks Tim. Yes we learn by making the wrong choices. In fact we learn more by making the wrong choices than we do the right ones.

      Once we learn, we start making the right choices which lead us to better places and the right choices.
