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.

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.
Second best answer, great phlilosophical take on the question. Thank you for YOUR response.
Too kind--I appreciate the comment!
Indeed, this is a great answer.
I think the key to being authentic wherever we are, is that we need to remember to enjoy who we are and what we have. It falls apart if we simply desire more without striving for it. Without taking action.
Live IT and live your ultimate life until you pass from this world. More people should be like YOU.
Oh yes, the neverending quandary. To BE or NOT, that is the ULTIMATE QUESTION. So many people are so DEATHLY AFRAID.........
Great, insightful response. I will give you a 95.
Your so right Grace-Wolf the world is a plutocracy,every government no matter the "label"we are all under plutocratic rule.
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.
Yes you are right, people are afraid to go beyond their comfort zone. But we should try something new - coming straight from our heart, not others.
