There are two kinds of people in the world. There are people who are portrayed as fierce and headstrong and instinctual, and there are others that are more anxious, cognitive, and doubtful. Those guys are called the Worriers and the Warriors.
From what I’ve learned, although you may show characteristics from both groups, one will always trump the other—you cannot be considered both a worrier and a warrior.
Warriors are reckless, and they basically do whatever they want. It’s not always a bad thing; for the most part, people who are considered warriors try to do things for the greater good. They like to jump to conclusions, and want to get right into action. They don’t want to wait things out, because there’s no better time than now. They’re usually mentally strong, and deal with the harsher things in life by pushing themselves to their breaking point.
On the other hand, there are the group of people who are seen as softer creatures: the worriers. Instead of throwing themselves into things without second thoughts, they calculate. They rely on facts, and aren’t as good with being In The Moment as the warriors.
I am a worrier.
I don’t think that one group of people is necessarily better than the other; they just deal with life differently. While the warriors want to jump in head first, people like me would rather try to figure out a better, more efficient, solution to things. But that takes time, and sometimes, we don’t have the amount of time that we need. So, we are often viewed as lazy.
Which, I am. I’m not saying that I’m not, because then I’d be lying. Hell, I’m writing this post two days after it was supposed to be released. Amanda, Queen of the Procrastination Nation. ProcrastiNation.
I think that it’s good that we’re not all the same; worriers and warriors need each other for balance. I think we can learn a couple things from each other. Actually, I tend to surround myself with warriors in my friend groups. Because although I’m usually the brain of the group, they’re the hearts that pump life into me. They push me out of my comfort zone, and I remind them when they’re not thinking things through.
We complement each other perfectly.
