Some people, they would be willing to fight or even die for at least some thing such as for the country, religion, beliefs and safety of others especially their loved ones. There are also some people that would not be willing to die for anything because for them it is better to be living and enjoy their life. The worst scenario is that when people have to or must die for their own sake because they have chronic illness. As for me, I have never have any of the experience where I need to die for before, so it is quite obscure to me. Further in this journal, I will include situations and if I would be willing to fight and even die for them.

In the nearest future, in these four to five years, I do not think that I am willing to die for anything. I am quite selfish regarding to life. I would just fight for them if the situation does not threaten my life.  One of the incident that I would be willing to fight for is when my best friend, for example, is about to cross the road, but suddenly a car come with speed, then I will just pull her to the roadside. If the speeding car is just a few meters away from her and I know that I will not make it, I will not do anything than just to see her being hit by the car. If my mind is in a good state and is not mentally ill, this respond is the most logical that I can think of to save my own life. In real situation, I do not know what I will do because being hit by a car is something that is unplanned. There is no time to think. I will do what I have to do even if it is illogical since I will be panicked. Besides, other example is that if one of my family members is suffering from sick and in need for transplant, I will help him. This is because, as science stream students, I know that a transplant is not life threatening. Thus, I am stating that I would not be willing to fight if it takes me to die.

However, after nine to ten years, when I have gotten into marriage life, I will fight or even die for my kids. This is what a mother usually does. This is just a natural characteristic of a mother. Even from the time mothers get pregnant, they already suffer. They have morning sickness, they cannot eat. When they eat, they will throw it. When the baby gets bigger and heavier in their stomach, they hardly walk. Sometimes they have back pain. In the same time, they have to do their works. When it is time to deliver the baby, they have to suffer a way more pain than during the pregnancy. The contractions become more regular from time to time. Most of the women said that delivering a baby is a fight between life and death, where the probability to die is 50%. When the babies are born, mothers usually wake up in the middle of the night to feed their babies to make sure they do not die starving. When their babies have fever, they will stay up all night to make sure the temperature does not rise even more. When mothers go to work, they will never stop thinking about their kids who are staying with the nannies. These things are what mother usually experience. I am really sure I will go through this too in the future. I will have the greatest feeling of compassion towards my kids. I am sure my kids will be worth fighting for since they are my inheritance and I am the one who will teach them how to live a life and what I want to teach them. As for me, I have lived my life, so let them live theirs.

In conclusion, I am not willing to die for anything for now, but I am willing to fight. However, for the next 10 years when I have kids, I am worth dying for them. As for me, dying for something is quite beneficial and can be worth considering when there is actually something more important than living while if I were to die for something like to achieve my dreams, then I do not think it is logical because dreams are more worth living for that I can enjoy my success.
