Most men lead lives of quiet desperation...
Hi, in my opinion men means human not male here. People conform and forget they are (not anybody else) responsible for their own life and happiness. To achieve something means to make an effort.
The problem really is that we pretend to be what we are not.Let us learn to be sincere with ourselves.This is a process.The society will nver help us to be authentic.Our parents will not help us to be sincere and authentic with ourselves. Our teachers will make us automatic machines. The society will systematically annul all creativity, authenticity and honesty towards oneself.They will use all means to comform us to the systems.
"Men" refers to mankind in general. Whether someone feels fulfilled in life has nothing to do with their gender. It has to do with living their lives with a sense of purpose and vision. Most people in the world live a life of obligation and not a life of priority. It is said that "most of what we regret in life is not what we have done, but what we haven't done." Life is about many little choices we make on a daily basis which end up getting us where we are. And because many of those choices are bad we end up living out of bligation/duty and not for what we truly value.
