Somewhere along the way, we are taught to develop alternative plans. This other plan accounts for contingencies, problems, and worst-case scenarios. The other plan reminds us that things may go wrong and we have to prepare ourselves to move, change, or alter course.
I am all for the other plan.
Sometimes the other plan keeps us from fully committing.
Sometimes the other plan gives us an out when things are tough.
Sometimes the other plan makes ending relationships, jobs, ideas, projects, too easy.
Sometimes the other plan keeps us from appreciating our actual life.
