We come into this world dressed by nature with a drive to stay alive and thrive.
We come into this world dressed by nature with a drive to stay alive and thrive.
> At basic level, the sense of being is driven by a desire to live. It is our genetic makeup that provides us this desire, because it’s what keeps our species from becoming extinct. And it’s one of the fundamental building blocks of life–the intrinsic need to survive.
> Of course, we all have this survival instinct. And in many ways, some animals have an even more acute survival instinct than humans do. But there are other reasons for being alive besides surviving, aren’t there? If you truly believe that your existence simply revolves around hoping for another day to survive then you’re missing out on the beautiful life you could be living! Life has so much more to offer than just breathing in air each day and hoping that you don’t die anytime soon! That’s not good enough anymore–it’s time to start living your best life now!
This drive is so strong that it often seems like more than a mere desire for survival and comfort.
The drive to achieve your individual potential is so strong that it often seems like more than a mere desire for survival and comfort. In fact, it is a desire that is so strong that it often seems like more than a mere desire for survival and comfort. Since the beginning of time, people have been searching for meaning in life through religion, philosophy, politics, and other social systems. They have tried to find the answers to some of the most important questions about human existence: who are we? Why are we here? What is our purpose in this world?
As we grow up, this powerful drive is often thwarted by the many things we need to do to survive and thrive.
As we grow up, this powerful drive is often thwarted by the many things we need to do to survive and thrive. We learn that certain behaviors are acceptable and others are not. We learn to read other people’s emotions and intentions so that we can fit in and belong. We learn to follow rules, not just the rules of society, but also the rules laid down by our parents for us as children. These include such things as “Don’t talk back,” “Be nice,” “Share your toys,” “Be home by 6:00 PM,” and countless others. Although many of these parental directives seem arbitrary when we’re young (especially since they frequently conflict with each other), they are given because our parents love us and want to keep us safe from harm.*
Instead of following our own life path, we often follow paths laid out for us by others.
Instead of following our own life path, most of us end up following paths laid out for us by others. Parents, schools, and peers all send messages about what makes a successful life. These messages are reinforced by cultural norms and expectations that have been around for years or even generations. We follow them because we think we’re supposed to.
There are many reasons why we don’t tend to go our own way when it comes to our lives. Sometimes we are too young to make decisions for ourselves and are easily influenced by those around us (parents, peers). Other times we simply don’t know ourselves well enough: what do I want? Where am I going? What makes me happy? Some of us believe that being happy is selfish so instead focus on helping others first before ourselves which leads nowhere fast!
For most of us, puberty is also the time when joining in and being part of the group becomes very important.
For most of us, puberty is also the time when joining in and being part of the group becomes very important. We become aware of our individuality, but we don’t want to stand out. We want to fit in and be accepted. We want to be liked; we want to be popular.
It isn’t only during puberty that being part of a group is important, however; it’s throughout our lives. And there are many different groups: family groups, friendship groups, sports teams, church groups, social groups — the list goes on. Being part of a group gives us a sense of belonging and security that is beneficial for us as individuals.
However, sometimes this desire for acceptance can lead us astray if it means we have to live against our conscience or according to someone else’s values instead of our own values or principles — just so that we can belong.
Being part of a group or club usually means doing things the same way as other people do them — and conforming to their ideas about right and wrong.
Peer pressure can occur in many different ways. For example, you might be encouraged to do something that is against your principles or beliefs. Or someone may try to make you feel bad about not doing something that everyone else seems to want to do. In these situations, it’s easy to feel pressured into changing how you think or act.
This is where self-awareness comes in handy: If you know who you are and what’s important to you — and if you’re confident in the choices that reflect your sense of self — then it’s easier to stand up for yourself when others seem intent on convincing you to “fit in.”
This can sometimes lead you away from your own personal path in life, especially if you want to fit in with your friends too much.
This can sometimes lead you away from your own personal path in life, especially if you want to fit in with your friends too much. Friends are a great thing to have, but they do not define who you are or the direction that your life should be going. If you have found a dream or goal of your own, and it doesn’t fit in with the lives of those around you, then stick with it anyway. Being true to yourself is one of the most important things that we all must learn. You need to be able to follow your heart and work out what is important for your life.
Sometimes others will try and influence the choices that you make, this can be hard but always stay strong in who you are and what decisions YOU want to make. The more confident you become in your own skin and who YOU truly are without needing others approval, the easier it will become to follow your dreams no matter what anybody else says!
