Let’s be real. The purpose of every lives is just to be alive. Nothing more. No fancy mission statement. No glory vision. No career advancement. Those additions come later when we are programmed by our society.
At the core of life, Being alive without fear is much more enjoyable than seeking safety and security all the time. Therefore, understanding ourselves what we are afraid of, and facing it one by one will lead us to more satisfying life.
In short, If it is not a life-threatening decision, do always choose the one that fear you. It will make life more pleasant in the long run.
” Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth). Make the growth choice a dozen times a day. “Abraham Maslow (1908-1970)
