Companionship is it really necessary???
So, why do we not question these social norms that have so inflicted our society for now millennia? Is it the fear that if we question these norms we would be considered a pariah? Or, is it because we wish to ingrain ourselves into the society? Well, the motives both arise from the same need that is of belonging of the desire to be a part of a group.
But do some of us really wish to be a part of a group? For extroverts who draw their energy from group activities and so this truly may be the case but for introverts like me who like seclusion, anonymity and being alone that may not necessarily be the case.The question then comes why is it necessary for people who do not company vie for companionship (friendship, relationship, family). Some of us are sometimes just trying to impress the group that we wish to be a part of you may say, but the underlying question is how did we become a part of this group? Some may say misery likes company but we need to ask ourselves are we truly miserable or is it because the world has said that we are miserable we start expecting it to be the case.
So the one question that I would like to leave with is why do we need companionship when we are so miserable being a part?
Watch this space for more questions that we need to ask of our societal norms...
