Even ‘normies’ often have the most unachievable dreams, and they are forever disappointed by not achieving them. Most normies are constrained by the reality of capitalism, where inheriited wealth and the connections are the reflection of success. Social climbing is rare, although it is often idealised by the myth of capitalism as being achievable. That is the ideal! it rarely happens, even for normies.
What is success? Is it the ability to make lots of money? In reality, to do well in this takes a glut of psychopathy, and yes they are happy, but then they don’t feel like ther people. Their indifference to other’s suffering and poorness isn’t a concern of theirs.
True success is to be happy, and I mean genuinely happy and that comes from connection and doing simple things like walking in the mountains, or helping another human being. That is easily achievable by schizophrenics.
Don’t be fooled by the overkill of media such as billboards, sociial media and other advertising bombarding you all day everyday. That is superficial. Success is to be happy and finding means to do that and not comparing yourself to other people is the first step to fulfilment.
