Are Humans Obligated To Better Themselves?

As humans, it’s natural to want to improve ourselves. We want to be smarter, stronger, and more successful. But are we actually obligated to better ourselves? Is there some unspoken rule that says we must always be striving for self-improvement, no matter the cost?

Well, let’s consider the alternative. What if we just accepted ourselves as we are and stopped trying to improve? Would the world come to an end? Would we all just sit around eating bonbons and watching reruns of our favourite sitcoms?

While this may sound like a tempting prospect, the truth is that we would probably get pretty bored pretty quickly. Plus, without the drive to improve ourselves, we might miss out on some pretty great opportunities. Just think about all the amazing things humans have accomplished throughout history. Would we have landed on the moon or invented the internet if we had just been content to stay the same?

So, while it’s not necessarily our obligation to always be bettering ourselves, it is in our best interest to do so. By challenging ourselves and pushing ourselves to grow, we can learn new things, have new experiences, and even have a little fun along the way. Plus, let’s face it, it’s pretty satisfying to check something off our to-do list, even if that something is just brushing our teeth without forgetting a quadrant.

In the end, it’s up to each of us to decide how much we want to strive for self-improvement. But remember, if you don’t challenge yourself, you’ll never know what you’re capable of. So, go out there and better yourself, or don’t, it’s up to you. Just don’t blame us if you end up regretting it.
