Hmm... Actually I'm agree with that saying. But there is a small nicety
So, here is my thought.
Being safe - means to be quiet for yourself and your close people. Sometimes we consider such condition for a usual fact, but when a danger reaches us we start to lose control. Our sacred world was invaded by such feelings as: uneasiness, non-confidence, fear, shame, despair... So here comes a question. It is better to feel always safe? Or it is better to be risky? Risk means - inconstancy. This minute - you're safe and happy
, and the next one - you're a total loser
. It is such a controversial theme, but I can give you very impressive argument, that being always safe, a person risks to become lonely and unhappy. Have you ever read "Man in a Case" by Anton Chekhov? Or have you even heard bout that book? If not, i 'll explain. This story is about a person who was always aware of everything. Every minute he predicted different troubles. Oh, no, he wasn't a fortune-teller but a simple yellow dog
Every day he wore a long coat (if winter come too early), rubber gloves (if a heavy disease erupt in the city), high boots and even hat O_o even if it were too hot on the streets. Also he had an umbrella in his hands, in case if it's raining. As you can guess, nobody loved him. Who can like a person, who always prophesies troubles and can never be calm. He didn't enjoy his life. He never smiled. He didn't knew the main values of life. So, I don't try to convince you that we should be too foolhardy. Just be risky but not reckless. Try everything, be curious, but never forget bout the consequences. Don't be an egoist! And surely remember a MAN IN CASE
. Being a little bit careless - is good
And that's my opinion
