This is so true. I'm sorry... but you are so right.
There is so much more out there than looks, money and meaningless sex that I'm sure if people knew about it... they would prefer it.
What is sex without a connection? A connection that spans more than a day, or a few nights, but is real?
What are looks? An expression of our true self? No, they are an expression of our fears to be seen and loved for who we are.
What is money but an illusion? It is a goal, and a fun challenge, but not happiness. Money is not human connection, but the opposite.
In the end, I can tell you which is more fulfilling, but it is up to you... and there is a lot of societal pressure that makes it nearly impossible
these days, so the effort put into it (finding love, expressing yourself, making human connections) is a lot, and not nearly guaranteed...
But I would recommend realizing the rarity and value of this in case there is a chance.
For example, me, as an adult, I view money, looks and meaningless sex as burdens. I have to earn enough money to cover the basics, I have to look good
enough to cover the basics, and I will not even touch meaningless sex because of the poisonous nature.
If I have a kid, this is a whole different matter as I have a duty to my child
Once all that is done, I get to go out and meet people, and explore, and create! If I actually want something, I mean I don't have a problem with
that... and if I was super into having fun making myself look good, I wouldn't either. For myself. Not to deceive.
And if people judge me for who I am, I don't want to be around them :-)
It is super awesome being around people who like you for being yourself.
