They made him work as a handyman instead. As a result, he would be cursed with crippling depression because he could never do what he wanted.

Noting the fact that everyone will simply indulge in everyday activities on doomsday, readers can infer the level of desensitization these people are suffering from. Because “the world [has been] busy being lots of awful things,” another disaster has these people unphased. Undoubtedly, this is a coping mechanism for these characters. In the modern world this can also be an issue. Just as in Bradbury’s story, today’s society has also been desensitized by the chaos around it.
His dramatic creations are haunted by an absence of meaning at the centre. In spite of this meaninglessness, Beckett’s characters desperately strive to find a meaning for themselves. They are born into an irrational world. They life is wasted waiting for an explanation that never comes, and even the existence of such an explanation might be merely a product of their imagination , founded in their despair. Beckett’s drama is based on his perception of human condition, that is, being born and mostly living in pain, suffering ordeals, a short rough and unpleasant existence.
PROCRASTINATION, a deep and wide disease in a moral nature Procrastination is a thief of precious brilliant ideas and time, an enemy of progress. It is the irrational delay of creativity against your own best interest for a short or extended period, making you more sensitive to pleasure of the moment, and creating great difficulties in concentrating on long-term tasks. The beauty of procrastination is its ubiquity. Everyone procrastinates from time to time, but not everyone is a procrastinator. It is a decision to not act; the real reasons - impulsiveness, hating the task, distraction and failing to plan.
OK, but what if we could take this fear of failure out of the question and attain the success that we want without unnecessary stress and too much trouble? Well, this is another thing. The famous published author Brian Tracy defined the fear of failure as the “single barrier between us and success” and we always use this “I can’t” phrase to express this kind of fear. I can’t do this, I can’t do that… and we pretty much destroy our own success because we fear so much about not being able to do it, hence failing at life. Which leads me to ask myself: Is it something in the way we understand or define failure that makes us so fearful, so stressed up and in the end unsuccessful?
Fear of failure immobilizes you, restricts you to your comfort zone, prevents you from moving forward in life and restrains your chances of success. Defeat is not easy to swallow. There is no worse feeling than facing failure. Failure leaves you bitter, miserable and depressed. It is then not difficult to understand why most people are afraid of failing.
While based on Khonsky and Hoe (2003), stress comes from the inability of a person to meet the certain expectations of life. It has always been part of everybody’s life; stress is acquired from all the responsibilities and demands of life. According to Anisman and Merali (1999), the ability of the body to adapt to challenges is called Homeostatic. However, according to Blonna (2005) and Familydoctor (2010), stress could either bring good or bad effects; it could make a person’s life better or put someonein deep misery (as cited in Kumari & Gartia, 2012).Apprehend that stress is only undeniably dreadful when it starts to be intolerable but most of the stress we are experiencing electrify us in our daily lives (Veena & Shastri, 2016). Stress is the response or action our body do to solve a certain challenge or demand in our lives (Vorvick, 2014).
Fear and weakness these are two main reasons behind our unsuccessful life. Fear of facing people and fear of exposing our weakness. It doesn’t allow us to do things that we wholeheartedly want to do. Sometimes these problems become so irresistible. And we wish to back ourselves from every situation, and then it becomes a barrier to our growth.
When someone is sad, it is seen as a bad thing; however, if we do not experience negative emotions, we will never be able to appreciate the happiness life brings. Overly positive emotions make us unaware to how we are affect others and how we are truly doing in life. In an article from TIME magazine, it states that “Happy people don't just accumulate fortune; they invent things— the lightbulb, the telegraph...” (Whitaker 26). Happy people do not become happy from nothing but positive emotions. In order to be happy, one must experience negative emotions to know what happiness even is.
