Well I’m not sure but I guess the first thing that pops into my mind is how close minded people can be. And I include myself in that statement. It just seems to me that it doesn’t matter how many things we are open minded about, there’s still a few that we’re not. We still judge people and we still judge the things they do. I do, you do, everyone I know does. It always just seems to become an issue when it’s something important to us.

Just because we don’t like them, doesn’t mean that they’re not good for us. I mean, who likes cleaning? Not many people I’d imagine, but it’s essential to our lives. I think the important thing in life is to learn to enjoy the thing we have to to or at least thoroughly appreciate the results of those actions. Like childbirth, it’s all worth it when you hold that baby.
Ooh yes, indeed. What a question. Of course failing is better than never trying ( with the exception of murder of course, you should never try that ) of course we can’t learn from our mistakes if we never make them. Of course failure helps us grow. But tell that to me next time you’re about to do something that terrifies you. At the end of the day, it’s easier said than done. Trying is difficult, and the more important something is to you, the stronger the emotion behind it. Yes, of course we shouldn’t let this get in our way.
You know as a teenager I could always imagine being 16. It was easy. I lived in a 16 mindset for most of my teenage years. Then when I was 16 I reverted to and 18 mindset. Once again it was as easy as breathing. Then once I turned 18 I set my sights on 21 and once again shifted my mindset. But now here is when a strange thing happened. I’ve never imagined myself being older than 21. Here I am, still 21 of course, but only for a few more months. I’m still struggling to come to terms with “22”. Weird I know. But if I really have to think about it I’d say 18, simply because that’s usually about the age the characters in my novels are.
