I’m a sucker when it comes to filling in questionnaires for fun. They make me laugh, understand myself better or cringe whenever I reread them a couple years later. One questionnaire I’ve been wanting to fill in for quite a while is called ‘50 questions that will free your mind’, written by Marc and Angel from marcandangel.com.
As an incentive to push myself to fully complete it, I’m going to answer 5 questions a week on here. That way, not only I will discover more about myself, but you get a peek into my life as well. Shall we begin? Here we go…
1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
I’m currently thriving as an 18 year old and would have to say that I really feel as if I’m 18. A young adult who is starting to do things on her own, finding out what her purpose in life in, what she’s destined to do. Yes, I would think I’m 18.
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Never trying! You’ll be stuck thinking ‘what if…?’ for quite a while and never know what a certain thing was like. Failing helps you grow in so many ways, so I’d rather fail a thing 365 times a year than not try something once a week.
3. 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?
This is one of those questions that can keep my up at night while I stare at my ceiling and contemplate about the answer. I think humans are scared to leave the safety of ‘their pack’, as if we’re scared to be unique and do things we love. The reason I do things I don’t like is because deep down I hope that one day they’ll help me achieve the thing I love. Maybe most humans think this, but I really don’t know. I have the feeling this question will keep me up tonight as well.
4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
I’m one of those people that has huge dreams, but doesn’t have the time or money to accomplish them. So currently, I’d say that I have said more, but when I’m a bit older, I hope I can look back on some beautiful moments and say that I have done more.
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
As cliché as it may sound, I’d want world peace. War drives people and cultures apart, it makes people flee their home countries, destroys the things they love the most and creates terror wherever it comes. Living in a peaceful country myself, peace is the one thing I’d want to happen in the world. All humans deserve it.
Next week I’ll answer the following 5 questions. Interested in seeing the entire list? It is published here.
