Oh there's more:
Nine times out of ten,
the disaster that you think of ISN'T the disaster that happens.
the thing you worry that you forgot to do, you did, but you don't even think about the thing you actually forgot.
the person you bent over backwards for holds it against you
the money you spent trying to make someone love you makes them resent you
the bad thing that happens has unexpected good results
the good thing that you got also came with side effects you didn't count on and don't want
