The Difficulty of Growing Up in the Modern World

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Well, I found an incredible Jordan Peterson video about why growing up is so hard and the challenges many people face. That is the point that you have to choose what you are going to do with your life. Dr. Peterson calls it, “Choosing your damn sacrifice” this is a narrowing of your options. This is the training period, where you have chosen to do something with your life.

This training period is like a door. You have 10 friends they all can’t fit through the door. someone has to be first, then second, then third, then so on till the last person goes through the door. Dr. Peterson talks about how you have this low-resolution potential. You can be anything but you really aren’t anything.

He talks about how you can pick your sacrifice and that schools are not helping kids at all, it is Pleasure Island. The cost is debt. The challenge is that changing from adolescence to adulthood and the choice has to be made yet we wind up with a bunch of adult infants which as Dr. Peterson said it is sad.

I like being able to help people find their "why" and achieve the personal freedom they desire. Besides writing for Relaxed Male I also am a life coach. By helping men find the leader that is found in each and every one of us. I do this by encouraging men to get outdoors and find the balance they are missing. Realize that they need to be in contact with the outside as often as they can. It is not only good for them but for their families and relationships.
