Let's assume your a traveler and you find yourself in a middle of the road which separates in two. The left side road seems to have stone trails, rocky path and not grassy. Let's call it as the road most often used for traveling. On the other hand, the right road seems to be totally opposite what on the left. Let's call it the road less traveled. Now let's see the advantages of the two road, on the left definitely give you safety. On the right, gives you the advantage of discovering new things. Will you take the road to safety in exchange of discovering new persons and thing plus the experience? You choose?

I would probably take the road that was travelled on more as I am not a big risk taker , too scared of taking chances for fear of failing . Although this may not be the best route because I could be missing out on opportunities in life , it is what I have always done and it is hard to change what you are used to , for something you know may be better for you but the fear holds you back so you take the safe route . Good discusion :)

Some people believe in alternate realities where every senario that could happen actually does. The theory goes that unbeknownst to our present conscious mind, we live alternate lives in other dementions. We learn ever thing there is to learn all at the same time. It is a "complete" life. So, If I, in this demention, chose one road, another of my selves would choose the other road. Interesting way of looking at things, isn't it? Does it mean we can't ever choose a wrong road? With this theory it would seems so. Actually this belief system makes life a lot less stressful. No more wondering wht the other road would have meant to your life. As someplace you did choose it.

I will take the road less taken. MOre and more people try to take on the one that has been traveled the most because it seems easy, but is it really the easiest? The road less taken will make us stronger and have a better feel when we come out at the end. I will definitely take the road with new people and experiences.

I will take the less travelled road. I like some fun and there is no fun in following others foot steps. I am not much of a person for safety and I do take risks more than others just to try somer thing new.
