Is a career more important than enjoyment?

ss12
Rawtheran

Yes. I think your career in your life is more important than enjoyment because you can always seek happiness. Despite not having it, having a secure lifestyle with a constant income is essential on living a pleasant lifestyle. If you do not have a job, you can't be happy because you are in a stressful situation. YOu need someone to support you, or else it is a struggle to be carefree. Thus, it can be said that with your career, you can seek happiness....

Rap is having a enormous effect on society.Before it was blacks being violent and a notorious race(you cant say im offending them because believe it or not im black born in manhattan and i was raised in the ghetto).Most likely more than 75% of rap has negative messages and telling people drugs are "cool".i even fell through their trap and i quickly became "ghetto".I would curse and even wanted to drugs.I dont mind rap existing but music is extremely powerful.Everyone listens to it and each music...

Human can't chage his destiny

Zarroette

I can control my destiny, but not my fate. Destiny means there are opportunities to turn right or left, but fate is a one-way street. I believe we all have the choice as to whether we fulfil our destiny, but our fate is sealed.

Belief in God is subjective.

Furyan5
RandRichter

I propose the belief or disbelief in God relies on a sense of perception which not everyone possesses. Like a blind person would have to take the existance of rainbows on faith as none of his senses can confirm or deny their existance. Now I'm not saying who lacks the sense, (lol and I'm not referring to common sense here), but it does explain why people are so sure of their beliefs that no argument can convince them otherwise. I repeat....this is not a debate on the existance of god.... It...
