If life were simple, we wouldn't have any stories. We wouldn't have any material to build them with. Stories are complex. They're filled with plot twists and tension-filled climaxes. Characters differ and sometimes they even disagree. There aren't always happy endings, but then again, a good story doesn't simply just "end." I don't think that I would very much like to live in a simple life. I don't think that I could live without stories.
