Each of us is the product of what we learned growing up. Each of us incorporated what we learned into our own personalities and a new person emerged. That person has an individual interpretation of right vs wrong or meat vs vegan. There are now over 6 billion individual people searching for that one true path of peace and harmony.
And so you grow to physical maturity and venture out into the world with the hopes of finding that one true love whose compatibility to you lends itself to your pursuit of that true path. If you believe that only perfect compatibility is good enough, you will live a lonely life with no spouse and no children. The trick in this life is to find someone whose true path is close enough to yours where a new and satisfying path is traveled by you both.
Now the decisions begin and with them the compromises. How far are you willing to stray from your path? How often are you willing to exclaim, ‘whatever you want to do’ without inserting your opinions into the conversation? Each time you ‘give up because it’s just not worth it,’ you move further away from your own path. Before long, you find that your two paths have not combined into a new one. At some point you will discover that you are now traveling on someone else’s path. Because you failed to stand up for what you believe each time a decision was made, you now follow in the footsteps of another. Is that what you want? No? What are you going to do about it?
