In school we are taught to do things for the sake of being good at things. That structure is difficult to break out of when the adult world only wants one to perform tasks for the sake of making a profit. Only a luck few are paid for what they enjoy being good at. The rest have to force themselves to fit into the shoes of a roles of the workforce. Emotionally this can take a toll as it isn’t natural for us to be actors that many hours in the day. Stress comes from not having enough self expression space. We are all feeling it, yet we all have reason to push it aside for the sake of some gain. Though if this is a the biggest stress, slaves in this society have it easy. We can find a way to afford things. No none of us planned to finance our lives with borrow funds and good will from others, but it is a necessity.
Only the rich can afford not to need people. That is when you know you are truly rich, when you wake up and realize that you haven’t listened to anyone in months. You haven’t watered your relational roots because you no longer need the fruits they bare. It doesn’t just apply to monetary richness. Richness-of-Self behaves the same way. It is a natural moving on without even realizing that one is leaving something behind.
