Pushed To The Edge
It’s inevitable; sometimes you’ll be driven to the edge.
Making it difficult to cope - pushed right to your limits.
As a natural animal, this usually leads to one of two responses,
Either fight or flight.
This response is evident everywhere in the animal kingdom.
Fight, meaning meeting resistance with resistance,
Pushing back, kill or be killed, the law of the jungle.
Whilst flight, infers running and hiding,
Self-preservation, subordinating yourself and simply obeying.
But what if humans had access to a third option?
Neither fight, nor flight but rather transcending your conditions and reaching for something beyond, serving a greater master.
Standing your ground in the face of adversity.
Not accepting things the way they are, but equally not imposing your will on a situation
Not subordinating your self to the status quo, but equally not trying to dominate any other person in either thought nor deed.
To simply live and let live
To find meaningful ways to rise above, without totally surrendering your unique character to groupthink.
