You have the choice, right now, to live your own life. But I would bet that you are not living your own life, most people live the life that is expected of them. I know, I fell into that trap, but now that I have escaped it, I want to help as many people as possible get out of what I call the matrix, just like I did.
The expectations of your parents, spouse, government, society, and the history of those around you have you living a life that may not even be your own. It’s funny, a lot of us probably look at Muslim women dressed in a Berka and ask why is she putting up with this B.S., take that thing off and get some fresh air and join the 21st century. Yet, we ourselves are doing the exact same thing, when we go to college to get a degree we don’t need, buy a house we can’t afford, apply for an auto loan, take a 7 day vacation out of an entire year, or drink a beer while watching a sports game. These are mindless decisions we make because others in the past made them and now we subconsciously feel expected to do the same without question.
