Everyone wishes that they could live their life like this. Unfortunately, life, does not always pan out that way for most people. How great would it be to live life without fear and dress the way you want, or talk to whoever you wanted without any fear of persecution? Vonnegut’s words are the ideal. To live life to its fullest, and never look back. As much as some people try to do this, their natural instincts usually kick in and hold them back. The fear of being mocked, rejected, failure. All basic human emotions that stop people in their tracks from breaking out of their shell and acting vulnerable. Vulnerability is usually the key reason why people can’t act the way Vonnegut is describing people should. No one ever wants to be the one who puts themselves out there and has the carpet ripped away right out from under their feet. The risk is not worth it for them. So instead, they do the basic dances they feel comfortable with. They aren’t completely open with the ones they love. And they don’t take risks at their job. I think if people took risks and lived their lives to the fullest they would just feel better about themselves. They would not be scared to experiment or to work out side the box. It would be a more interesting world, for sure.
