TV show

I finished the show everyone has been talking about: 'Squid Game'. My sister practically begged me to watch it because she thought I would love it.

I didn't. I'm not sure I even liked it. It had some really tense moments but it's not the kind of tension I'm a fan of. Sadly, I found the whole show a bit pointless and at least a couple of episodes too long. I struggle with the point/moral of the whole thing. Are you not supposed to help the people who look like they might need help? Sure, capitalism is bad but it seems all humans are bad too? Good mental health is worth a lot more than money, right? And human lives are worthless. It's all a big mess to me.
I did like the hype about a non-American show though and the Korean actors were great (let's not talk about the English-speaking characters or their dialog).

But now I've watched it and I know what people mean when they talk about the show. It only cost me around 9 hours of my life, I guess. At least my sister will stop bugging me about it and we can move on to better things.

You can do it

For most of their life, the sentence that had been repeated over and over in their head had been "I can't do this. I can't do this. I can't do this. I can't do this. I can't do this. I can't do this" and they had believed that voice who told them they couldn’t do it.
But time and time again they made it through the difficult situations they didn't think they could get through. Slowly the "I can't do this" turned into "Maybe I can do this" and then "I will try my best to do this".

The sentence was stuck there for a while at "I will try my best to do this", understandably so. It was a big step up from "I can't do this."

Eventually, the sentence turned into "I will try my best to do this and if I fail, everything will still be okay" before finally becoming "I can do this",
Of course, in the beginning, it was more of a question than anything but with that time that question mark was turned into an exclamation point. Interestingly enough more and more things turned out to be a success. It’s amazing what we can achieve when we set our minds to it.
