i know what's right and what's wrong. i am cheerful and out going. it's hard for me to find the one that i want, but once i find the right person, i won't be able to fall in love again for a long time.


"Do what you love and you'll be good at it. Sounds simple enough. But what if you love reading comics, playing video games and watching korean dramas until your eyes pop out? Is it possible to make a career out of such things? What's the alternative? Spend all your time wishing you were brave enough to take that leap? Don't let fear stop you from doing what you love. Because ultimately, it's about being true to yourself."

Stress: Good and bad


Question: What good is stress?
Answer: Our flight-to-fight response to danger served us well when sabre-toothed tigers were salivating over our tasty flesh. In the modern world, the stress our instincts create has no natural outlet. Stress builds. As it builds, our physical and psychological well-being is damaged. Let's see how we can tame the savage cave-person within...

Question: How does stress affect your happiness?
Answer: Stress cripples our immune systems, shortening our lives. It damages our heart, leads to diabetes, disrupts the digestive system, leads to strokes, and reduces our mental capacities. A Harvard study found that 60-90 percent of visits to family physicians are stress-related. Worse, stress can lead to suicide. Another 500,000 visited emergency rooms due to attempted suicide. These are not sign of happiness.

(From the book of 9 Habits of Happiness by David Leonhardt)

*Stress sometimes can be good and sometimes it can be bad. When it's good, stress can build up our confidence and motivate us to become a better person than others. It strikes us to put more effort in order to build up our self-strengths. However, too much stress can be hazardous to our health, especially to our mental brain. Stress is a kind of serious mental disease which is hardly to cure if we don't know how to manage it. We can never remove stress because it is already inside us. But there are always solutions on how to deal with stress. Too much stress can lead us to death. So, if we don't want worthless death, don't be too stressful over useless and worthless things.
