A soft fork is an upgrade to the software that is backward-compatible and has validators in an older version of the chain see the new version as valid. Effectively, a hard fork, more often than not, leads to a permanent chain separation, as the old version is no longer compatible with the new version.

It depends on your current mental condition
That's why it's hard to answer.
We're always in different situations.
Today, perhaps hard work; later, a soft style of work would be preferable.
