If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?
Because if we all do the things we like and neglect all the things we don’t, the world will be in a mess. Sure, most people don’t like to do housework. Most people don’t like to study. Most people don’t like to do construction work. I’m sure the cleaners out there would also have their own dreams and want to pursue them too. I’m sure there will probably be a doctor out there who actually wants to be a freelance writer. Or something. If everyone does all that they like, everyone will be happy.
But we need all these people. We need people to clean up our streets. We need people to construct our buildings under that heat. We need people to use their brains to help make the world a better place. We need people so the world can be much more stable. That’s why we can’t have everyone satisfied. Someone will have to suffer at the expense of another (ohmygosh, I’m using econs… ). It’s a sad fact.
I can’t believe I wrote all these out. This is the first time I thought of this. I’ve never given much thought to this before, and I wrote all that out in one shot. Wow. I feel… enlightened. XD
Am I even answering the question correctly? Because I have a feeling I didn’t. Haha. Oh well. At least it freed my mind. Answering these questions are so fun. :)
Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Which is worse? That’s pretty hard. I wonder. The typical answer is probably never trying. To me, though… hmm… failing is worse. Even though I know that never trying is not good, and this action is kinda cowardly. To me, failing really is worse. Failing demoralises me. It makes me think bad of myself. I get a bad experience. I feel worse. I’d really rather be a coward. I really hate failing that much. And every time I fail, I tell myself, I’m never gonna try doing it again ever. I get all traumatized over it. I guess because I’m always such a perfectionist.
Never trying, to me, is like living under the disillusion that there is still chance of succeeding. Trying and failing means destroying that chance. So I would rather be happy and never try. Even if it means not getting the experience.
While trying is good, and may help you discover new things, when comparing never trying and failing, I would totally choose not to try rather than to fail. So yeah, I’d rather be a coward. If I fail every time, it gives me one more reason to hate myself.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Hmm… I would be probably… 16 years old or so. People always say I look younger than I really am. Haha. And I have a childish mind. :P And I get really happy easily, as in… sometimes just seeing someone’s face makes my day. I don’t know… I guess I act younger. Haha. I’m not really very mature, and I don’t think very maturely too. I like to be young. :)
