Do you take life too seriously?

There are two types of people ( in this context) in the world: The serious ones, who have the burden of the world on their shoulders and the others, the carefree, happy-go-lucky types.

I would love to be in the second category! In fact I am always trying. To be able to laugh away worries and even responsibilities!

The non-serious ones:

These are the lucky ones , as the seriousness of life bypassed them. They are ready with a smile and a quip to parry aside admonishment and criticisms upon their conduct. You can’t take them to task for neglecting their duties or to hold them answerable for anything they did wrong. Not that I want to imply that these happy-go-lucky people are irresponsible, no, not at all (at least not all of them!) . What my point is that while life is not taken too seriously by these people, they also take their own troubles and problems in a lighter manner. Their Jobs and assignments are not ,the be all and end all, of their lives. This remarkable ability of taking life and themselves lightly makes them ideal type of people to be emulated.

The serious ones:

The other type of people are those who take life too seriously. All the entrusted tasks are a sacred duty to them. You won’t find them in the cafeteria when work has to be finished. Their job and responsibilities are not to be taken lightly. They will be going the extra mile to please their bosses and colleques. Work or other responsibilities like kids, home chores, whatever they are entrusted with, they will be putting all that they can, into it. At the same time they are also taking their own life, troubles and problems very seriously. All matters are of grave importance. Issues, big or small throw them off their stride. They are constantly under stress.

So what sort of person are you?

We can be a happy mix of both types of personalities, if it were up to us. But we are born with certain predisposition and genetic makeup, which makes it very difficult to wholly change our character or type of personality. What we can do is to try to learn to be more positive, and carefree. Be responsible but not take it to the heart. Be happy but not irresponsible. You see where I am going with this. Try to meld the other type of personality ( which is the side you are not born with) with your own. If you’re the happy-go-lucky type, develop your caring side and if you are The serious sort, try to take life and yourself a bit lightly.

Let me know how you like my post. Waiting for your feedback and comments.

    1. Yes, that was the point. Try to create a balance by our own will. The fact that we are born with a certain take on life, shouldn’t stop us from trying to improve our own personality. Thanks for the feedback.

  1. Wow,
    So awesome, I liked that.
    You know I am that type of person who doesn’t give a shit to my responsibility or anything, but I feel hurt if anyother person got hurt or so. This hatred is hard for me to digest, just like that.

  3. I like to make people laugh, so I guess I can be the happy-go-lucky sort, but on the other hand, when there is work to be done I cannot relax until its done….guess I’m a mixture of the two.Don’t sweat the small stuff….
