Why are we looking for the cat's fifth leg?

When things go wrong, we complain, logical. When things work out for us... we doubt. Why are we looking for the cat's fifth leg?

How we talk

When things go wrong, we complain, logical. But, when things work out for us... a little bit of a doubt. We think something else must be behind it, which can't be so easy. I'm sure we're missing something. It is at that very moment when someone (a relative, a friend) appears with the phrase that perfectly describes what we are doing. And  he says , “You're looking for the cat's fifth leg.”

The fifth leg to the cat. The cat has four legs, we all know. Looking for him a fifth is, at least, ridiculous. Especially because, if I had it because of some kind of malformation, I'd be there in sight. That would be the first thing we'd look at about that  cat . There would be no need to look for her. If we look for her, it's because we don't see her. If we don't see her, it's because she's not there. But we, in our endeavor not to believe that things can be so simple, we get entangled.  We distrust , we screw up and, worse, we don't finish enjoying when things go well and now.

Sometimes there is no fifth leg. Sometimes we're lucky or we get what we deserve, and that's it. We have a hard time to relax, but how much easier it would be if we could do it from time to time. Stop looking for the cat's fifth leg. Just think it can't happen to us. Enough to believe that everything can't be so good. Sometimes, it just happens.
