Some people think that young people have to have as much fun as possible whereas others say that they have to be more serious and prepare themselves for the future.

I think one should prepare himself for the future. First of all, things don’t happen fast. It takes time to prepare yourself for, say, university. Second, useful skills develop for quite long. You can’t just run a marathon or do 20 pull-ups. Also it’s a habit to improve yourself constantly that can be very useful when a person grows up.

At the same time there are people who say that live is short and yang people have to enjoy their youth. So youth is time for fun, later there will be family, work and other routine.

soch 001 004

In my opinion these people have a point. Good health and yang age allow people to enjoy life better. Nevertheless, who said that working on your good qualities doesn’t bring any joy? This joy is even bigger and deeper although it takes effort to get it.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support enjoyment in youth against the ones that support being serious, we'll see that the facts that support being serious outweigh those against.
