20 Things That Aren't Worth It

20 Things That Aren't Worth It

Updated: Nov 21, 2019

Hereby 20 things that anyone should consider avoiding in life:

1. Suicide: Is there anything beyond death, but eternal darkness and nothingness? It should be awaited when the time comes. Right now, this is the Age of Productivity.

2. Evil: What is the point of having pleasure over the suffering of others? Why is such a thing pleasure-able? Pain is no subject for humor and ridicule.

3. Any form of addiction: Addiction take away your independence, making you dependent on them for happiness, validity and sanity.

4. Rape: Rape is the sexual form of evil, of attaining pleasure over one’s suffering. It is also makes the victim nothing more than a silent, lifeless object, used for gaining pleasure. It is an insult to the race that conquered the world, the human race.

5. Joining/creating a cult: A cult is a sphere of darkness that isolates one from the Light of Independent Reasoning. What functionality does ignorance serves, beyond the power of those who generate it upon others’ minds?

6. Anxiety: Such state of mind serves no functionality, and thus is best to be avoided. It is a state where the System of Survival overreacts, and thus an internal chaos is made, even if it’s temporarily. Victims of anxiety should be treated with care.

7. Over-exhaustion: The body and the mind are machines motivated by energy. When there is minimal to no energy, there is unnecessary suffering when doing a certain task, and the task itself becomes less accomplished than in where there is sufficient energy to complete it. Rest should be perceived as a state where one recharges themselves, for a better optimal productivity in the future.

8. Ending up in prison: The purpose of prison is equivalent to that of a school: to teach you and to educate you. In the case of the prison, the moral is to make you regret the act of crime you have done, by teaching you that crime is not the way of living. You can save up a significant portion of your lifespan by knowing this moral before committing a crime.

9. Obsession with appearance: To be obsessed with one’s appearance, is to compensate for the lack of one’s self-confidence, by reassurance that one is beautiful enough to fit in. It is a waste of time, and sometimes, a waste of money. Face surgery? Luxurious clothing? Extra makeup? Extra-muscular body? They are all signs of anxiety that one is not good enough; a compensation for lacking internally, by exaggerating externally. Much time could be spent on actual productivity.

10. Big Ego: In comparison to the vast Void of the Universe, we are all tiny beings, residing in a

small planet, inside an infinite space. Even if one is particularly good in one thing, it doesn’t necessarily make them greater or of more existential value than people who are less good in that particular thing.

11. Tension: It is not healthy physically and mentally. Perhaps it is good for concentration, but what other functionality does it serve?

12. Lack of physical activity: Your body is a machine. When it is neglected, it becomes weaker to the point of making you suffer.

13. Candies and snacks: All they do is make you satiated and happy at the cost of your health. Healthy food can do the same without weakening your health.

14. Lack of commitment: When one is not committed to their job, their productivity remains incomplete. When the rail remains unfinished, it becomes a waste of space. Only when the rail is completed, it becomes of importance.

15. Starting a family unprepared or by accident: Not everyone is fit enough to raise a family, whether financially or mentally. Be cautious or else you are going to be otherwise-avoidably suffocating and making a new life form damaged as well.

16. Rudeness: What importance does a rude behavior contains? The same massage can be transported without insulting the person before you, and without potential conflicts between you and them.

17. Adultery: The entire idea of marriage is to symbolize the loyalty between one and the other. When adultery is to be committed, the symbolism of marriage breaks apart. If so, what was the point of marrying in the first place?

18. Disrespect for your parents: Your parents are your true creators. Disrespecting them is equivalent to disrespecting your own life. If it weren’t for them, you weren’t here, reading this writing. They are the source of life itself.

19. Disrespect for your children: Your children are your own creation. However, it does not grant you absolute authority over them, that gives you the right to put them in deep shame. They are people like you, even if they are younger and have less experience than you. They are the next members of the world in the future; your behavior towards them right now could have an immense impact on them when they are to develop and mature as people.

And finally,

20. Gambling: The faith of entire families may depend on one’s ability, or inability, to overcome financial temptations. You may be enthusiastic right now in the casino, but this enthusiasm could potentially destroy your and your family’s future. Entire property could be taken from you. There is nothing more vague than gambling. Least, not tempt to increase the bet when you are to be successful in a gamble, because a potential failure could worsen when the bet is set up higher.
