What if’s after the fact don’t do anything to change your outcome.
So all those posting “what if Hillary won” or “what if the teachers had guns” or “what if Elvis never died” or whatever what if you wish to post is just that a post.
It’s a hypothetical.
Your “what if” post doesn’t make what you hoped happen actually happen.
If you want change then stop asking “what if” and start asking “how do we adapt to what’s happening?”
Look the situation occurred, it happened.
Maybe you don’t like it.
Maybe you’re upset over it.
But pondering a “what if” doesn’t change anything.
But, figuring out how to live your life and move forward will help enable others to adapt and eventually overcome the situation and make changes for the future.
We get so caught up in the minutia of thinking things can change when we ask “what if”.
And we forget about the “here and now”. We want change so bad. We want to be heard.
That “what if” seems to be that thing that gives us hope and allows us a glimpse of some future.
Not necessarily better, just different.
So, your “what if” scenario, that alternate reality dream you think should happen, that person, place or event that should change somehow is just an illusion that produces false hope and bitterness.
Yes, your “what if” is causing you anger. You feel that you were cheated and deserve something else.
