They say ‘Be careful what you wish for: it might come true’. I say that’s an honest-to-God truth.

The way I understand it -or want to- the saying refers to all those negative things you unconsciously attract through anticipation and end up happening. Like pushing away people, provoke a fight, predict a failure…

If deep down you want people to walk out on you, believe me, they will.

If deep down you’re trying to make someone mad at you and cause a dispute, you’ll succeed.

If you believe you’re going to fail, failure is guaranteed.

If you secretly want to unleash Hell, you -AND ONLY YOU- will.
