Resolutions: Please resolve not to live your life passively and/or vicariously

As we go through our daily lives, we face our daily annoyances and the obstacles that stand between us and the direction we would like our lives to take. Overtime, many of us are worn down by day to day grind combined with the frustration of not having the lives we aspire to.

All the energy that we expended trying to achieve those dreams seems wasted, as today our dreams seem no closer than they were a year or more ago.

To be sure, life is hard. There are no guarantees. And sometimes resigning ones self to “fate” seems the easiest and best option.

And so begins the habit of living ones life passively and/or vicariously.

Some of us Americans escape reality by playing games and measuring their self worth by how well they succeed in those games.

Some live vicariously through favorite TV Programs, Movies, Sports personalities, music videos and celebrities.

Sadly, none of these passive/vicarious activities do anything to improve our lives in the reality we actually live and exist in.

And this shift to passive/vicarious living happens almost unconsciously.

We become passive and/or begin living life vicariously as a coping strategy. The body has a pain avoidance reflex built into it, whether that pain is physical or emotional.

Further, Not trying to make the team, make the cheerleading squad, get good grades, trying to marry the homecoming queen or star high school sports star, attempting to graduate from college, asking for a raise and working toward a promotion or starting your own business is much less difficult and stressful than trying to achieve those things. If you don’t make the effort to achieve those goals, you don’t have to deal with the disappointment of what you perceive to be likely failure.
