A serial killer is a person misunderstood by society simply because he or she does not fit into a mainstream social construct. He or she only makes his or her rules, and he or she does not acknowledge any authority or autonomy over him or herself, except which ones they give authority to. One thing serial killers can teach people is that they regret nothing of what they have done, even when they have been caught or killed in action.
Could one say serial killers and serious criminals were happy in their deaths and their life? Possibly so.
Motivation is highly important when looking for happiness, but, unlike serial killers, people are mostly afraid of making decisions and regrets they could have after making a decision. However, an imbalance, or arrogance in making a decision, is oftentimes the key to one’s happiness.
When one accepts the consequences of their actions, they learn from their mistakes, and get the chance to try again. Understanding the balance of things is highly important, but to ensure you gain a new level, balance could become a limiter, and imbalance can break this limit.
Always be not afraid to try new things. If it makes you happy, then do it, regardless of the consideration of other people. Be not like serial killers, who have only focused in their own belief. Keep your imbalances in check, and allow them, like roots from a tree, to grow out of you and to elsewhere, and stop them when it had grown enough.
