Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there's no use arguing with God about your destiny.
The more words you speak, the less they mean. So why overdo it?
In the few days of our empty lives, who knows how our days can best be spent? And who can tell what will happen in the future after we are gone?
