People Break Down Which Things Everyone Should Experience At Least Once In Their Life

They say life is too short. That may be because there is so much to experience in one's lifetime, it's not possible to do it all.

But why not go out there and try as much as possible?

While some people choose to remain within their comfort zone–whether out of fear or lack of interest–others are taking advantage of their mortality by going out and experiencing all life has to offer.
Life is a grand adventure, wouldn't you say?
In an effort to inspire those who may lack the motivation to get out and carpe diem the heck out of life, Redditor TheRealRandiRey asked
"What is one experience you think every single human should have?"

Positive humanity-related experiences seemed to be a good place to start.

Perfect Role Model

"Having a really good boss. Work is totally different when you have someone who mentors and cares about their employees."

– NeverCallMeFifi

Embracing You

"Being comfortable with yourself, physically, mentally, emotionally, financially, and in all other ways. Just being happy with who you are."

– Prismatic_Dragon

Going After Laughter

"Finding something so funny that you roll on the floor laughing."

– CoelHen2021

Attain The Goal

"Being Debt-Free as an adult"

– kittybidapadoop

"Paying off my student loans felt better than an orgasm. I was stressed for years trying to pay it off and I finally was fortunate enough to land a good job and a good partner who allowed me to skip paying half rent for a couple months."

– pale_moon_pixie

Love Matters

"Feeling loved. Doesn’t matter if it’s romantic or platonic but feeling loved in some way."

– DoYouReadMuch

Taking in certain sights was strongly encouraged by these Redditors.

Cosmic Wonder

"Seeing the milky way."

– Jayciflash

The Ultimate Blackout

"A total solar eclipse. Did that once back in 2017 and it was amazing. There’s another big one in North America in about two years."

– ShanghaiTed

Foreign Travel

"Visiting another country. I feel like it would put people in a different perspective for everyone."

"Also, swimming in the ocean."

– boot2skull

Get Out There

"This is important but I want to add: visiting a country that’s significantly different from your own. Going from US -> Canada or Denmark -> Sweden is great but the cultures aren’t drastically different. The people, the food, the ideologies. I feel like you learn a lot more about the world and yourself when you visit someplace different."

– GivesCredit

"Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving." – Auntie Mame.

Don't be a poor sucker.

Wintery Playtime

"Getting to play in snow."

– brokendowndryer

Spend Time Alone

"Having no obligations or responsibilities, even if it's only for a few days. Nowhere you need to be, nothing on your schedule that you need to do. There are no loved ones around who you need to consider. You literally have the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want."

– domino519

Channeling Walden

"A breathtaking moment in nature."

"It’s hard to put words to it but it conjures up so many different emotions that somehow all combine to create pure awe."

– iguanaherder

I think traveling to a foreign country is important.

Getting to experience different cultures firsthand and engaging with and learning from locals can be a life-changing experience.

I was lucky to have worked on a cruise ship where I traveled the world and worked with people from all over the world.

Without my exposure to different cultures, I would be a different person.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
