Pleasure vs. Pain

We seek pleasure and avoid pain, subconsciously, i'm not sure how psychologically correct is that, but I've learned recently that this applies to myself.
The decisions i make are influenced by those 2 desires, seeking pleasure and avoiding pain, and if both options collide, the priority goes to avoiding pain.

This would probably apply to the "play it safe" people too, the non risk-takers, risking exposing yourself to a potential pain for the sake of a promised pleasure is usually a failed option.
The amount of pain caused by someone/something, is proportional to the amount of pleasure you felt by the same cause. The happier you are, the more sensitive and vulnerable you become.
And i'm so vulnerable at the moment.
