if excitement comes at the price of hassle, trouble and the (highly) potential risk of needing to do things i don’t want to do — give me simplicity, give me certainty, give me what i know of and what i’m used to.
If i do not go, i won’t know what good things i missed out on. If i do go, when shit happens, i will be fully aware of the shit that i been through. I will also know for certain what i had to compromise on to go.
Even if it means boredom, even if it means missing out — for simplicity sake, the experience will be one i need to give a miss.
now the question is how to miss it (and its not a very hard one)
of course there are some instances where the (even uncertain) gain is sufficient to outweigh my above reasoning.
its like deciding whether to see a group of people: some of whom you felt like you haven’t seen for a long time and some of whom you’re glad you haven’t seen for a long time.
i think my track record answers it sufficiently.
