adapting servants of environment
we long to make sense of things, figure out who we are, wither bound, and to what end, while the eons roll on in their mindless ways. It falls then to us to make sense of this journey
we survive in this life by adaptation … learning from our world — families of origin, popular culture, world events, religious training, and many other sources — who we are, what is acceptable, what is not, and how we have to behave, perform, in order to fit in, gain approval from others, and prosper in this world into which we were thrust
we become too often a servant of our environment, given our need to fit in, receive the approval of others, stay out of harm’s way.
