What causes so many people electing to live a gray and nondescript life?


So many people prefer to live a life within parameters. They follow the rules of their family, religion, and society. They oftentimes accept such rules with little question. They follow the particular life script of their family, religion, and society. They are afraid to venture out of this prescribed script because this is a familiar zone to them. To venture out of this zone would make them quite uncomfortable to say the least. They prefer a life of security/comfort although mediocre than to venture and really live their BEST life!

    Thank you, Billie. I was just thinking that so many people are so fearful of really living life on their terms. It is for easier for them to follow the parameters set by their family, religion, and/or society. The "reward" is quite purgatorial!
