Much of Life is Avoiding Negative Consequences

Posted: January 11, 2012 in Random

Think about the things that we do on a daily basis. Even those things we consider necessities.  On some level, all of it is to avoid negative consequences.  We eat food to avoid hunger pains/starvation. We work to avoid poverty. We take medicine to avoid symptoms or prevent our health from declining.

Is any of it really necessary?  No, not really.

Even when you think you don’t have a choice, you do. It’s just that we have a difficult time considering the option with the negative consequence as a viable option.

How does that make you feel?
