What is this concept of social interaction that we’ve constructed in our minds as appropriate and correct so to speak? How can one interact on merely the physical level when there are so many other factors at play with the people we have and/or meet on a daily basis?

They say you should settle down, build a family and yet somehow that doesn’t seem meant for me. Yes we can adapt and compromise but if you understand your inner purpose and can see visible results of what you can do when you aren’t expanding your life within a rather limited domain – then it seems destructive to ones growth to hide yourself from… truth.
Life is about forming complex agreements with other complex beings so as to get to where you want with companionship. Perhaps marriage like religion is simply an archaic concept because it’s easier to follow those rules blindly even - than to go through the efforts of communicating a unique arrangement with somebody. That seeming to be what differentiates a successful relationship vs. one that is based entirely on image or sex.
… The most frustrating aspect of all this being that society likes to break happiness and watch you stitch it together again and again. Under the guise of good intentions of course!
At what point do we look around at the sea of faces smiling through the hypocrisy asking them the “right” thing to do and if it doesn’t feel right then well, I must engage substances and continue on because this is what my conditioning taught me as respectable. - a. rogue
