  1. Gavin,And you base this (“won’t lead to fulfillment anymore than following the crowd”) on what? Sounds like a jaded and quite possibly non-generalizable opinion presented as a fact.You’re entitled to post an opinion, of course; but not to state your opinion as a fact without any backing of why we should consider it such.I for one greatly enjoyed the comic. But if the shoe doesn’t fit you, don’t wear it.

  2. I enjoyed this comic, as the shoe did fit. I wore it, and I love my life (thanks for that John Jacob). I think Gavin, you are wrong to believe that one cannot create a fulfilling life or that an individual cannot create meaning for their life. I believe the opposite to be true, if we can create a way to live and enjoy our lives, why follow mundane and out of date expectations? The way I see it, we spend 40+ hours a week at a job, a significant chunk of our lives. In order to have a truely happy life those 40+ hours a week should be spent doing something that makes you happy.There are many examples in the world where walking away from societal expectations has in fact created a happier, more fulfilling life. I am certain their are people who are happy follwing the crowd and climbing the corporate ladder, supporting their family with a nine digit income, but it isn’t for everyone. I think your opinion falls short by making a sweeping generalization.
