Autumn – you either have sunshine and its extremely freezing or it rains and it’s kinda warmer. Just like the weather trades off sunshine and temperature, almost everything in life is about trade-offs. If you go for the one thing, you have less or even cannot have the other at all anymore. In very seldom, and very lucky cases, you can actually say that you can have both. I feel like every positive thing in your life also comes with a negative side to it. Think about it. Even the most desired things in life like money and love do have downsides, and those are just as extreme as the positive aspects to them. Give me tons of money so I can buy everything I desire, only to make me realize that it does not make me happy after all. Give me the love goggles and the feeling of being the only one, just to make me realize that the tiniest thing that person does could potentially hurt me severely. So… does that mean I should not go for big cash and deep love if I could? That would be quite irrational, wouldn’t it… I believe we should go for it, but at the same time be aware of its downsides. If we are aware about what we are trading off or what we are risking with one decision, we will hopefully be less surprised when the negative aspects surface and and the same time we can put all our energy into the positive side. Yes, I know that more money will not make me a happier person, but it will open up new opportunities which might lead to something big. Yes, the person I love will make me more vulnerable, but I’ll find a way to deal with that and still know that the positive feelings overweigh. Trading off is not a bad thing, it only makes us more conscious about our possibilities.
