I personally agree with the quote “the brave do not live long but the cautious do not live at all” because it is much better to live you’re live freely than to play it safe. I believe it is better to live freely because if you play it safe you wont have crazy memories to look back on and tell your friends and family. You also gain more experience than someone who constantly plays it safe because you’re put into new and unfamiliar situations, which you would not normally be in and you have to react to these situations. Its also better to live freely because you are not restricted by your actions and you will never have any regrets later in life because you’ve always done and said what you wanted. You will also have a better life if you live freely because it’s much better to have a shorter exciting life than a long boring one. If you live on the wild side, you will meet a lot of new people and potentially make a bunch of new friends. Also people will like you for who you really are, because if your always just being yourself and your not being cautious all the time, people will see who you really are and they may either really like you or not, but it doesn’t matter because you are who you are and you cant change that. I from personal experience have learnt that its better to live freely than not, it has led me to do cool new things I wouldn’t normally try, and it also has helped me to have a lot more fun instead of being shy and worried about what people are going to think of me. I think everyone who chooses to live freely, will enjoy there lives a lot more, and they will get more out of life because life is short and no one is going to live forever, its what you do in the years that your on the earth that define you as a person.
