Musings on life
Who are we?
Why must we make life so complicated? Constantly asking, "Should I be doing this? What will people think of me?" Does the opinion of another person really matter?
Is there ever another human being that knows what is good for us as individuals? Not only in our public life, but in our private life as well, we look to our peers for acceptance. Do years subdue this need for acceptance or simply allow us to deal with it more easily?
Are we, as parents, forcing this same dependency on our children, so they in turn will grow in a world of insecurities? Where does one draw the line between delinquency and standing up for what one believes in? For choosing a lifestyle that is not considered normal by society we tend to torment ourselves with feelings of guilt.
There are, unfortunately, too few people in this world strong enough to pursue what some consider to be euphoric dreams. But then euphoria is different for each of us.
