SITUATIONS IN SOCIETY
1) Alienation in an unfriendly, but controlled social environment
2) Invasive messaging in advertising and products
3) Co-think where you generally think
4) Stressed with no time, or place, to relax
1) So how many people does it take to have privacy when you feel alienated in an unfriendly, but controlled environment?
The answer is yourself.
First, demand the space you should have for yourself. Everyone around you feels not only entitled to their own space, but entitled to limit the space of others. Know and claim your heritage front and back. Be confident of your contribution, as an individual, to yourself and society. Carry the aggression you need to feel comfortable for you and your things. Don’t be embarrassed about it. This aggression is not to be used as proactive violence, but as self-defense. A little surliness in your nature is not a problem. Don’t be obnoxious.
Second, detach by finding an activity that helps you withdraw from complex frustration. Let the frustration go to take a walk in the woods or gardens. Go to a movie that will be interesting and enveloping. Go out with a friend. Churches, museums and galleries will also provide a place to get out of yourself, and appreciate the beauty of something else. Keep the important decisions you have to make filed away in your mind. Then let go of the drama and stress, to relax and enjoy.
Third, work positively for the result your are looking for. If you aren’t meeting or working toward your own expectations and goals, you will lose faith and confidence in yourself. Remember you have many parts of yourself, that need to be acknowledged and developed. Taking initiative for new goals will eventually pay off in meeting new goals. Don’t be lazy for yourself, or you will lose your quality and motivation.
