I’ve had enough.
Enough of the rat-race. Enough of the maze. Enough of the tricks that have been trained into us.
We’re born into a world of expectations put upon us by people who are already dead. Anything that takes us away from those expectations causes friction. The people who are following the rules don’t want to see you get free. They’ve been taught that the expectations are “right”. If running in the maze is right, then escaping must be bad.
Is it wrong to save and invest 90% of your income?
Is it wrong to avoid a mortgage?
Is it wrong to refuse to work a traditional job?
Many people would not disagree with the idea of being free from the rat-race. But in practice, they will do anything to justify their own conditioning. Even if it means shaming you into a failed escape.
I don’t know about you. But I’ve had enough.
