I have heard the saying, "Be Careful What you wish for" many times by people older then me, when I was younger, and now being in my 30's I have to
agree about this. I want to give a few examples and perhaps you can add yours.
I used to work as a metals specialist having to do w/ welding, realigning, heating different pipes and various metals and I always wanted to climb the
ladder in the Co. Eventually I was a manager running jobs and crews and got what I wished for. Will this included more pay but was not worth the
stress. Some times going 20 hours straight, more paperwork, more responsibility, more chaos, etc and I started wishing I can go back to be a field
When I was a broke teenager, I always wished for lots of money and had to deal w/ the problems associated w/ being broke. When I was working crazy
hours and had lots of money, I had to worry about what to invest it in, whether the economy will crash, what to do with the money, people coming out
of the wood works asking me to borrow it. Life was simpler when broke.
When I was in high school, I went after the hottest girl in our school. Everyone wanted her and she had a bf at the time. I used notes, candy,
flowers, all types of tricks and even fought her bf and won, and eventually got the girl. Well as beautiful as she was, she was shallow and a surface
walker and not all there at the time. Whereas afterwords I have dated average looking girls and they have been awesome, soulful, deep,
My sister hated her job and looked for months for a new one. She got the new one and its 20 times more busier and crazier than her last one where she
at least could sit down, check emails, read the news, etc. This new gig, she's on her feet all day and exhausted once getting home and now says she
kind of misses her old job and old co-workers. I warned her about the "Careful what you wish for" theory, but she had to learn this on her own
All this to say, that I have found the saying, "Be careful what you wish for" to be True.
