Tim, a friend, and regular viewer of my HoboTraveler YouTube channel asked,
"How does one escape the rat race?"
Which make me feel good, this infers I am not in the rat race, and maybe he does know; that I am not in the rat race, he is correct.
There are indeed "rats" in a "race."
There is an anti-war slogan, sort of coined during the Vietnam War times.
"Suppose They Gave a War and Nobody Came."
And, I could say, we could say,
"Suppose we had a rat race, and there were no rats?"
With no rats, there would be no race.
I want to say,
"Don't be a rat, and don't enter the race."
As your psychologist, I would do them annoying, open ended questions:
"How does it feel to be in a rat race?"
Which labels you a rat?
Do you feel like you are in a rat race?
Then, you are indeed a rat.
Funny, too funny to me, it is always enigmatically amusing to me, when a person complains about something they are doing, I want to say,
"Stop doing it."
We, as humans do, what we want to do, we are what we do, not what we say.
So, what is the number 1 way to stop being in the rat race?
Stop being a rat, and stop entering the race, and I hope you say,
"Andy, that don't make sense, how, why, or what do you mean?"
Truly races are held in specific locations, where are you living? If you, are in a rat race, you are probably surrounded by rats, also in the race, and they are competing with you, they are the problem, you are the problem, we rats are all the problem, and the race is being help where we are located.
This is simple, the chaos, the hectic nature, the traffic of the city, your boss demanding you finish it today, then you repeating the American slogan,
"I am too busy."
The job, the city, your friends, family, the location.
Quit your job, change cities, or countries, change friends, change locations.
You must leave the rats.
