7 Life-changing Questions
An assortment of different questions that help a person think of what he/she really wants in life. These questions helped me figure myself out when I was lost, so maybe they can aid you as well.
1. Which is worse, failing, or never trying?
Really makes you think about what you want and it convinces you to take more risks and to have less regrets.
2. To what degree have you controlled the course your life has taken?
This question is more about doing than anything else. It’s about taking action, taking responsibility.
3. Are you holding on to something you need to let go of?
Many times we are unable to do something because we can’t let go of the past. Forget the past; the only way it can haunt the future is if you let it.
4. Why are you, you?
What makes you special? How are you unique? How are you any different? Maybe you are very versatile? Who knows? Find out what you’re good at and that you enjoy simultaneously. Complete yourself by giving uniqueness to your life and what you stand for.
5. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a friend who lives right near you?
Just a little heads-up. It makes a person grateful for having friends. A reminder to never let them go.
6. It is possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Make sure you question everything before believing it. Don’t accept everything just because someone said so. If you don’t then you will surely be pushed around and used.
7. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you enjoy doing?
Another reminder to just keep at it. Never stop pursuing your goals, no matter what. Nothing can stop you from being happy but yourself.

1. From my experience, I’d say if you keep on trying something but you KEEP on failing, it’s better to never try the next time around. Sometimes it’s just as graceful to avoid things that would otherwise disappoint/hurt you.
2. Control. Love that word :D. MI believe I’m still ‘guiding’, ‘navigating’, and ‘molding’ my life and all aspects of it. Besides, life’s full of surprises and spontaneity; I can hardly control that.
3. I think it’s not about forgetting it, it’s about releasing yourself from that past. And from what I can tell, that’s a VERY difficult thing to do. For all intents and purposes, I guess it’s a short ‘yes’ for me.
4. I’m very *insert positive adjective*. LOL
5. Not an issue to me. People come and go in my life just as I am to theirs. Well sometimes it kinda hurts when either of the two happens but I always move on.
6. I don’t really have a personal answer to this. But there are people that would rather not raise inconvenient questions because they are happy with what they believe as the truth. As for me, sometimes I just manipulate my way out or in of it. All for my own convenience at the time. Sometimes it works, sometimes it don’t.
7. Don’t really care. Whenever I’m asked to do something, I do it without complaints. Most especially if I’m sure I can carry out the task.
