Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
It's not always better, but it is the practical answer!.

But if no one took risks, if no one was daring, there would be a signifigantly less amount of people 'living' in the world!. Life should be about mistakes, adventure, love, growth, etc!. You can't grow into a better person if you don't TRY different things!. Mistakes are going to happen whether you play it safe or not!. So go ahead and live your life because you can't usually go back and try it again, but since you're going to mess up a lot anyway, you might as well take the chance!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It almost seems to me like you're asking "Ought I do reckless things in the hope that I will gain some kind of pleasure from it!?"

In which case, No!. You ought to do things that make sense to you!. Personally, I'd sooner play it safe than be sorry!. Its a balance of risk management!. If the risk is low, and the payout is high, go for it!.

^__^ Its never a good idea to bet it all on anything!. Having a lot of confidence in your decisions is an important part of living!. Look out for the long term!.

A less extreme form of happiness that lasts for the rest of your life is better than Super Hyper Awesome Happiness that amputates a leg or gives you a venereal disease!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I am daring after considering the options!. So I guess I am more safe!. I don't just decide to throw it all out on the line!. But I haven't even graduated from High School yet!. But I want to go into a cut throat business, so I have to be daring!. I love the thrill of just going with an idea!.

I have a set image in my mind of a good life and I will fight for it! Like nothing else!. I am willing to be daring for something not life threatening possibly!. Don't drink, don't do drugs!. I know better!.
I guess it's because I have one, I repeat, one chance at this thing called life!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I play it safe i mean would you jump out of a plane for happiness and have a chance of your parachute not working!? i wouldnt! Dont tisk for happiness unless its love you can take a chance for something not deadly that plane thing is just to life threatning ok!!! lol
Are you daring or do you play it safe!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

It's always better to be sorry because in actuality, if you play it safe, you can find yourself REALLY being sorry!. Basically, I find that it's better to go all the way and leave no questions unanswered which may come back to haunt you later on in life!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

There is a risk in every decision you make as a result most people dare to give it a try to see what happens because that's how life works!. Do we always get "happiness" for our decisions!? No, we don't but that's our way to learn which works for us and which doesn't!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Life is a gamble, so why not take a risk, go for what you think will bring you happiness, I said THINK , not only feel, and accept whatever happen, how do you play safe, no one know future!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I'm mostly safe, though I go through small periods of sorry!. It is definitely better to be sorry though (within reason), because someone who goes through life never taking chances is missing out on so much that life has to offer!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Depends what type of person you are!. I usually play things in the safer way, but some things you have to take a risk to have happiness!. Maybe have a equal balance between the two!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I play it safe but to spice things up I'll take a risk from time to time!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
