EXTRA CREDIT EXAM POST - What's your idea of "the good life"? Do you consider other people's well-being to be any concern of yours? My idea of the good life would first involve coming to peaceful terms with myself. Being able to accept who I am including the way I think, look, and act. I want to be able to live life without having to question or regret or feel self-conscious about everything I do. Once I am able to be at peace with myself I'd like to be able to make connections with others. The general well being of other people does matter to me because it affects my mood, but being able to have a deeper connection with my friends matters even more. After this I'd like to set goals for myself including obtaining a stable job, saving up for a house, and having a decent car. Even if I don't achieve all these goals the fact that I had the opportunity to attempt them is what would bring joy to my life. It's more about the journey before the destination.
