Soul Pancake Challenge #55

Soul Pancake Challenge #55
What emotion do you wish you could better control?

Amanda Tate-
I wish we never had to experience the sadness in death but that pain is simply in response to our knowledge of the absolute joy in living. I hate when we become jealous when we find out our crush is with someone else. We can't help we feel special and get excited in being with them, though. I dread the times our anger is called out when we find out a friend was hurt by another. Don't mess with the ones we love. I despise fear but maybe, just maybe, if we never experienced fear then we would never know what it meant to be brave. Whether it's killing a spider or saving a life, it's in those moments of bravery when we feel we could conquer the world.

Every single person is different, every one reacts to experiences in life differently and everyone responds to emotions in different ways too. In pain, some get angry, others cry. In joy some throw confetti, others simply smile. It's emotions though that allow us to experience life in its fullest. they unite every one in this world together though. That stranger sitting next to you, he's felt happiness and sadness just like you. That acquaintance you just met, she knows what it's like to be mad too. Feelings allow us to relate to one another and it's in those emotions that remind us everyday that we are not and never will be alone.

List Five Questions you HATE not having the answers to.

Ryan Barton -
I want to say there's so many that I can't just think of five, but I don't even know if I can selfishly or selflessly come up with one decent question. Questions are all around us. Where? When? Why? How? What? When? We each have our own individual questions we desperately seek out to find answers to. Some of us go to great lengths to find the answers... Only to be disappointed and answerless. I mean, yes, I can think of some but it's almost like getting three wishes. Do I really want these three wishes? Do I really want the answers to the questions? Or are they just a rash impulse thoughts I'm having? The five questions at the top are the first five I received from some friends. In my opinion, the first four are about success, fulfilling life's journey's. School, careers, life, ... soda, hey we all have our ambitions. But the fifth question is the one we all have... Why? Why? Why? Why do these things happen? Why don't they happen? Why don't we have the answers to the questions we have? AAAAHHHH!!! It's a vicious circle. Why? Turns to When? How? What? ugh... and back around.  Then we're more disappointed when we don't find the answers, but what if we stop searching? What if we just Live? Live every day without an expectation and just enjoy the surprise, the unknown of what life has to offer. But that's not in the human nature to take it as it comes, we have to Why. So here is my human instinct...

Why am I stuck in a mediocre place in my life with the knowing I can be so much more?
What do I need to do to get to the next level?
Where would I be if I chose the other option?
Why after fighting so much from disease and prayers do we still lose the ones we love?
Why am I here?
