Are we just buying into this stuff to fit in?

Though people living in the first world have less poverty, freedom of speech, and are generally more free to do whatever they want, there’s a few things that really irk them. Do we tend to overwork ourselves because our employers demand it? Do we refuse to take time off because we’re scared to lose our jobs? And if we lose those jobs, will we be able to afford that brand new car or big house? These problems may just be manufactured because of the society that we’re living in.

It may be a great time to be alive, but that doesn’t mean Western civilization isn’t without problems. We should stop doing these bad, detrimental behaviors.

Do you feel the pressure to succeed and are just making yourself miserable?
