Why It’s Okay to Actually Have Fun

If you are aware of current pop culture and trends, you will notice that a lot of shows are based around casual humor that involves themes of self-deprecation, nihilism and existential crises. The problem with this is that it ultimately becomes the set norm which if you have noticed, has become a problem for numerous reasons. As a generation, we tend to indulge in self-destructive behavior because “we are going to die anyway.” If not that, we have developed an atmosphere where having “too much fun” is considered uncool and asocial activities like staying inside all day is glorified.

Now I am not saying that you have to be out all of the time and meet new people every day. Understandably every personality is different from the next and not everyone enjoys loud parties, however, if you are doing it to the point of depriving yourself of social interaction, then it becomes a problem. We need an average 6-8 hours of interaction every day in order to function as human beings. So, when you are depriving yourself that, your wellbeing is affected.

Our time in this world is limited. Our bodies are only young and able for so long, so it is important to make the most of it. Go outside, go on a weekend trip, go on dates, go somewhere, even if that means going alone. You don’t have to be grand when it comes to your plans. You can start out small, start by spending an hour in your garden every day, you can even get colored landscape designs done to make your yard more appealing, then start inviting people over and visiting other people. From then on the only way to go is up. You want to make sure that you have something to look back on later on in life.
