Over time, we have grown to understand that high standards for living do not necessarily result in happiness and contentment for the population.
In this post-modern age, what one witnesses is that most people are not happy.
They are usually anxious, not satisfied, not happy, and generally hopeless about what the future might bring for them.
And so, the question is asked; what is our problem?
Yes, there are many mental disorders that can affect your health in more ways than anyone could ever be able to count.
Pressure often makes people snap and do things that they otherwise would not.
But there is another important reason for our assimilated unhappiness, and that is what we know as the treadmill of life!
You see, life in the modern age is complex.
People cannot be certain about their future, nor about their past and memories.
Right and wrong, shallow and subtle, difficult and easy, powerful and weak, and all these other parallels have been undermined by the sheer complexity of our modern society.
It is not an easy thing to keep up with everything that is happening in our world.
Yes, there are a lot of opportunities, but each opportunity represents a set of different complications that you have to deal with.
Imagine a husband and a father of two children in the modern world. The man works two jobs to provide for his family.
He has to raise and educate his children, or at least spend some time with them.
The man is also looking for improvement and progress, because he wants a better future for his children.
There are many opportunities, but each of them presents him with their own complexities and difficulties. Is this man living the ideal life? Is there any happiness for him?
No, for a person like that, life is a treadmill filled with status anxiety. He is always running. He is making progress. He is getting results.
But is he happy?
Here is an idea for those of you who are now terrified of what society might have in store for them:
You do not necessarily have to work yourself into the ground in order to achieve success.
Do clever work.
Be smart. Find the shortcuts. Increase your talents and competence and raise your level of efficiency.
Life doesn’t have to a treadmill.
Life could be a painting, with all its beauty and magnificence ready to be experienced and discovered…
A BIG HUG!!
