Living vs. Existing

If you want to exist, here's what to do:

  1. Wake up right before work
  2. Do only what you are told
  3. Repeat

It's very comfortable.

Living, on the other hand, is uncomfortable.

Because to live, you must actively choose. And choosing is:

Overwhelming -- Because with so many options, it's easy to think there is only one "right" thing.

Hard -- Because once you choose to do something, you actually have to do it.

Scary -- Because if you take your own path and fail, there's no one else to blame.

If you want comfortable, you're better off existing.

But if you want something more, it's time to decide:

Would you rather be comfortably numb or uncomfortably alive?
