So, tell me what are your three c's in life? The Three C's are supposed to represent your life's ups and downs along with representing yourself. At some point in age, everyone finds out what their three c's are in life. It's mainly found when your older and has experience all that life has thrown at you. So what about you? What are your three c's?

My Turn/Example:

Creativity, Complication, and Curiosity

Creativity: I have a strong creative side that I am using constantly to fulfill my duties as a writer. I haven't gotten much far but I have not lost hope.

Complication: My life is nothing short of easy and I am always having some sort of complication. The struggles in my life are due to the faults in myself.

Curiosity: I am a very curious person who is constantly questioning things pertaining to life and myself.


Sometimes our three c's change until we find the right ones or they remain the same for life. It really depends on the person. Some people never find their own three c's. And that is alright because it means more time to find them in the future. These are my three c's now but they could change or stay the same. Though I have a feeling these have been my three c's for a while. Now tell me what are yours.



A Remake of an old thread.

Cynicism, Candidness, Communication.

Cynicism: I don't actually believe there is good in people, I've always thought that goodness and purity were something entirely contrived. I think of things like cute aggression and I immediately think that human being are just horrible at feeling, People I think play to our naivety to trick us into a facade of emotions.

Candidness: I care a lot about honesty, I just want people to be upfront with me and not omit things that they don't think I can handle, I think it's just frustrating having to deal with someone who isn't upfront, who keeps too many secrets.

Communication: I wish people would convey their ideas more thoroughly, they'd actually know how to converse, I think it's harder for people now to come forward and just talk, either it's just how shut in people are now. I just don't wanna have to misunderstand someone's intentions so I feel it's better they talk to me.

Contemplation, Caring, Conditioning

Contemplation: I try to think deeply about the choices I make in life and the foundational doxa of those choices.
Caring: I understand the importance about caring for other people as fundamental to caring for oneself.
Conditioning: I understand the importance of good living habits and the contingency of my life on external factors beyond my immediate locus of control. Hence, I am careful about what I allow into my life, as its eventual influence would certainly be larger than what could at first be anticipated.

I see I have some overlap with bandage106

Confusion, Cynicism, Candidness

Confusion: I'm having trouble figuring out my place in the world and what I want from it. Currently my conscious and subconscious mind are at odds with each other, they both want me to do two completely different things which makes it hard to get anything done. I think my conscious mind is making the right calls for my future but my failure to act on them suggests that on some level I agree with my subconscious enough to stand in my own way. Trouble is, one of these is a dead end that leads nowhere, the other lets me move on into an uncertain future. I'm perfectly aware of this and still continue to sabotage my efforts which confuses me to no end.


Cynicism: The world is not a kind place. This is a fact. Nobody is going to act out of just the kindness in their heart. Everything anyone ever does only serves their own goals. Some may want to make you, and themselves, believe that they're selfless and good people but it's an act. There's only those who aren't as bad as others but when it comes down to it humans are selfish creatures.
Every opportunity comes with a catch, if I haven't found it yet that only suggests that it will come back to bite me later.


Candidness: I don't like playing social make believe as I feel it's a waste of everyone's time. I tend to be brutally honest and don't sugar-coat my words. If you ask me how I feel you're unlikely to get an "I'm fine", instead expect me to tell you what's weighing on my mind. In the same fashion if I'm not really interested in how you're doing I'm not going to ask out of any kind of social obligation to pretend i'm interested. If something is bothering me I'll tell you frankly and not dance around the issue.
I come across as blunt, direct and honest. This drives some people away but I reckon they weren't worth the effort to begin with.

(s)cepticism, compassion, and creativity

I doubt a lot, I value being empathy and mercy, and innovation and creativity to facing adversity.

Consideration, compassion, and consumption.

Consideration - to explore how something may affect myself or others.
Compassion - to consider how others may feel on something and why.
Consumption - to relish the fruits of humanity, be it food, music, or stories.

Curiosity, Common sense, Caution

Curiosity; the fundamental emotion to exploring new ideas, skills etc, without curiosity we stagnate

Common sense; my definition of common sense is basically treat others like you would like them to treat you, and don't do things for the simple reasons of self gratification or to impress others, make sure what your doing will actually enrich your life and hopefully the lives of others around you.

Caution; be cautious of what you choose to believe, especially if that belief is mostly driven by your emotions, or peer pressure. Be cautious of things you do because in most cases your actions or lack of actions will affect others, and causing harm whether intentionally or unintentionally is something to avoid whenever possible

I like common sense , that was mentioned above. Pretty much all the good ones are taken already.


I'll go Cobber and Cunt. Both pretty much mean the same thing in Australia lol, although cunt obviously has alternate meanings.

Cynacism, common sense and caution.

Just have nothing but low expectations in life and you'll never be disappointed.
