Universally, people are more miserable than they were 50 years ago
Are you happy? How often do you ask and process that?
Work has become modern suppression in developed countries, in particular the United States. Ask five people you know if they love their job and majority will say no. The American Dream has turned into the American Indentured Servitude Force. We are pipelined from elementary school to follow the rules, meet expectations, don't talk... just listen. People have been conditioned into normalizing such behavior. To just wake up, go to work, and go to sleep. Is that all there is to life? The truth is, we never stop to ask that question until something drastic happens. We get fired, receive bad news, our health takes a wrong turn. My challenge to you is, stop. Stop and ask yourself. Are you living or are you just alive? The below books reminded me of the mortality of our lives and challenged me to question, what am I living for?
