This is an item of an American attitude test:
"I tend to focus on the present, because the future nearly always brings me problems"
there is no context for this sentence. I would like to know what this part of the sentence means "because the future nearly always brings me problems". Could you pleas help me by explaining and paraphrasing this part of sentence?

Basically, this question is asking whether you tend to think that bad things are in your future.
The future brings me problems = I think bad things are awaiting me
In a nutshell: Are you an optimist?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
