Some people think that the most important thing in life is health, whereas others do not agree.

soch 001 002
In my opinion health is the biggest possession one can have. First of all, bad health makes a person focus on pain but not on his or her goals that they strive for. For example, usually sick people forget about everything they can enjoy but think only about getting rid of the pain that tortures them. Secondly, being sick a person cannot achieve what they want in their life. For instance, he or she wants to travel and see new countries but their poor health conditions do not allow them to do it.

At the same time there are people who say that if you do not have good health all these values of life will not bring any pleasure. Your consciousness will be always focused only on your body pain.

soch 001 004
In my opinion these people have a point. Good health is a very important part of human existence. Nevertheless, there are more important things. There are healthy people but absolutely unhappy, so how can health be the most important thing in humans’ life?

soch 001 005
In conclusion, I would like to say that if we weigh all the facts that support health as the highest value of life against love and family, we will see the facts that support the last ones seriously outweigh health.
