Life Compromised for Safety
How many people would, by impulse, go skydiving? How many people would bungee jump off a bridge? Not many. People lives are trite, we live day in and day out in boring repetition. I'm not saying I'm any different, but I try at every given moment to spice things up (within legal limitations!! Hehe) Compromising living with safety. One in a hundred people would rush into a burning building to save a life. We individually value our lives. this is not a bad thing, but it does prevent experiences and memories from being made. Now ask yourself the previous questions, but this time pretend you were in a plane that was about to crash. Would you jump then? My guess is yes. Again, we value life, we take the same action and put it in a different situation. Why did the answer change, did all of a sudden our fear of jumping before die? No the idea went from free will to nessesity to survive. My point is this, don't live to survive, live to live. Take a bite out of the ripest apple of life and keep eating!
