Do you believe that the majority of people are not living authentic lives but prescribed lives which


explains why they are unhappy most of the time? Only a few people are living life the way they want and have jobs/careers that they enjoy doing. Most people live their lives the way their parents, religion, and/or society dictates that they live. They are also in jobs/careers that they hate and/or barely tolerate, just WAITING for the time they can RETIRED. In other words, the latter are LIVING A LIE and A LIFE OF QUIET/UTTER DESPERATION.

    Great answer. Denial is one of our greatest atrocities and we fight to hold onto it.

    Yes, the MAJORITY of people live that way. They have choiceless "choices" so to speak. Many people live a false live. They realize TOO LATE that they have wasted their lives.

    Many people are enamored of comfort and security. They go along with how OTHERS tell them to live and be. People follow that consensus because it is secure, the well worn path, and comfortable.People are AFRAID to go out of THAT zone.
