Touching The Void
Why, in your opinion, do people like Joe and Simon need such extreme challenges? Describe a personal challenge in your life. How do/did you cope?
There are many people which need extreme challenges, and I can’t exactly understand them. I don’t need such extreme things, but I like challenges, so I can understand them a bit. I think they’ve done this to show everyone how great they are, and also to show themselves, what they can achieve.
From this angle, my life is pretty boring. I’ve never been in an extreme challenge, and I never feared for my life. My body and my mind aren’t that fit, so I actually struggle everyday just a little bit. It’s also a challenge for me, but it isn’t that difficult.
My newest challenge is to lose weight and get rid of my anancastia, and that is extremely challenging for me. It doesn’t sound that hard, but for me it’s very exhausting.
