Would I want to change my life for a 9 to 5 job, just to be secure?
As strange as it may sound to normal people, if indeed there is such a concept, I much rather have gone through the failures and the successes, in between, than having lived no life at all!
Yes, it can be hard to walk down the trail that has no footprints, but it teaches us so much every time we explore new avenues.
The penalty for job security is a closed mind, whereas, the penalty we pay for exploring and testing our limits are mental bruises and often socially awkward social situations. But I rather have the latter.
