When it comes to life, we are told that most of the time, it is good to act in moderation. This usually means that we have to avoid the extremes and focus on staying in the middle ground, not too high and not too low.
However, I believe that moderation can only apply to certain situations and certain people. Additionally, some kinds of extremes are good.
Take drinking for example, here moderation is highly required. One should never drink too much especially if they are a lady like me because embarrassing ourselves is the last thing we want to do. Eating is another thing that must be taken in moderation. Eating either too much or too little has its disadvantages.
When it comes to feelings and expression of emotions, moderation is difficult to exercise. Love for example, when does moderation come into play? Should a person hold their emotions just to show that they are exrecising moderation.
In general, moderation is a difficult thing to exercise but if we are conscious of our actions then we can choose areas where moderation works to our advantage.
