Into The Wild (2007, Sean Penn)
He did what he wanted (despite what people might have thought), and not many people do, perhaps through fear that they can’t succeed. His family had a lot of money, so it would have been easy to stay and live a wealthy life and we’d never know about him, but would he have been happy if he’d done that? He did not believe that money = happiness. We shouldn’t let pieces of paper and little coins determine the quality of our lives. We should chase our dreams, and we should chase them with no negativity about the endeavour.
One thing I learn from Chris’ story is that, although you can be fine for x period of time on your own, you need other people in your life to avoid loneliness.
