A friend of yours got married at “the right time”.
Another one got settled abroad.
The neighbour spends weekends relaxing and weekdays grinding. 

The world is out there chasing the obvious things.
Settling down quickly. 

However, if we chase what everyone else is chasing we will end up with what everyone else does.
Chasing something that does not excite us ends up with a life that does not excite us.
Chasing something because there is no other option visible ends up with no other options visible.

The obvious way to beat the resistance is to resist the obvious.

How will we ever know what we could if we are always entangled with what the world does?
