It's the naked truth! Our relationships, beliefs and happiness stay inextricably intertwined. We make ourselves unhappy when we struggle to keep them separated, when we apply a disconnect while denying or pretending other than the naked truth, and especially when we force ourselves to comply with the required views of groups whose ideals we do not uphold. Feigning a belief for any reason increases stress. We suffer from that, and my Equalitarian views tell me why we would all fare far better if we would dare to stand up for our natural inclinations rather than bury them for the sake of a job, argumentative family members, neighbors, peer groups, and all the other places and people we force ourselves to endure just so we can belong.
I don't advise jumping off the wagon just because it doesn't roll in quite the right direction. Use your fetid circumstances to quietly learn why you feel misplaced, and to discover what you really want from life. What is the naked truth about you? "Why bother with what seems so obvious?" you asked. Without that information, you will replace one undesirable set of conditions with another, and lose more than having a firm grip on your own driving forces will gain for you. The naked truth arrives not from someone's mouth, but as flashes of insight containing informative glimpses you can recognize as meaningful to you. It comes from you as you show yourself the naked truth within your own being.
I write fiction and nonfiction derived from my own discoveries with an aim to help others find their way across the fetid pools they suffer onto firm ground that will support a new outlook on life. You may fail to recognize many connections at first. That happens when you are ready for it. Forcing it will gain you nothing more than a new fetid pool in which you'll feel more miserable than you are now. So, be careful. Read a lot (start right here). A book labeled 'Fiction' may present an important key to get you started. Happy, fruitful reading to you.
