Understanding life

You understand backwards,
but have to live ahead
making those decisions
with a tiny touch of dread.

Soren Kirkegaard once said:
“You can only understand life when you look back,
but it has to be lived going forward.”

It’s not so bad to make a mistake. What’s really dumb is to make no decision — for fear of being stupid/making the wrong decision. Been there, done that.
