Should live have an eject button?
I'm not talking about suicide, thats different.
I mean like ejecting from a current mess, into a totaly different situation, like moving to a new country, but less hassle.
If there was such a thing, would you use it?

On a related note, anyone else see The Butterfly Effect? It kind of explores this idea. I think No, I would not want a button like that. Better than even chance to be in a worse situation than you start in.
Just my ¢ ¢.

With every day I learn more about the world around me and the events that transpire. I find that sometimes I wish that I could uproot from where I live and live in a different place. Such as it is my believe that I should have been born in the mountains in a colder climate but I wasnt.
On another note. When life just seems to come to and end and days start to blend together and change very little. I would love to uproot and move.
anywho ..just my 2 cents

So if pushed when your life is in the shitter, you have nothing, etc. theres a decent chance of things getting better.
But if it just seems like your life is toast, but really it isn't, pushing it would be a very chancy thing.
Personaly, i wouldn't push it, my life at this moment is... well, fucked, but it's going to get better, and i have lots of good options that i might not have after the eject button...

I lived there for 7 months in my early twenties.
If you do not speak Japanese, start studying now, I never did pick up much of the language,
it is a hard language to learn.
About the red button/eject button, I was diagnosed with Breast cancer 2 years ago. I am fine now, but There is an automatic red/eject button that happens in your brain, when you are faced with your own mortality. Your whole life and way of living changes completely. You live life in a different way than you ever did before, it is hard to explain, all I can say is; LIFE IS SHORT.

But I think that I am put in every situation for a reason. Maybe to get some sort of lesson or become stronger, I don't know for sure. But I do know that if I had a magic red button to push when things got tight, I don't think that I would be who I am. I'd probably have a lot less perspective or have a more trivial nature.
So an eject button would make things a lot easier, but it still may not be the most desirable thing....

The point is..I would lay in my tent freezing my ass off thinking if I had a button to push that would instantly put me in warmer climate would I push it?…I seriously wouldn’t (and couldn’t! haha). I knew I would eventually be sleeping more comfortably eventually and just toughed it out. Pain is what defines life and without it you cannot experience true joy. I still look back at the nights I spent in the desert and/or the Rockies sleeping under the stars in no tent. Completely comfortable. Fucking amazing! And it was the pain and anticipation that defined those moments that I can still remember vividly. Don’t take the easy way out! Peace.
