I agree with the sentiment, but change is not as easy for some as it is for others.
How do you decide to go out and socialise more if you have nobody to go out with? How do you decide to get up and go if there are people that depend on you to stay? How do you decide to travel the world if you can barely afford to pay the rent?
If change is something that is easy to do then I agree 100%, go for it, but for many people just deciding that you need to change is the easy part, but actually being able to do it is another story altogether.
I've been many things. I was the frightened child hiding from the bad things. I was the shy teenager that was afraid to talk. The too proud young man raising his kids and trying to make a failing relationship work. The abandoned one trying to figure out how to live life alone. The clown, hiding his tears behind a mask of humour and finally the cynical, untrusting, long in the tooth guy I am now.
A widespread and serious lack of individuality. We are already seeing a world where the prevailing ideal is to use intersectionality to define people not as individuals but instead by some overarching characteristic, such as race, gender or sexual orientation, whilst at the same time we are teaching the next generation that this is the only way to think, and that if you raise objection to these broad definitions, you are automatically a racist, or a sexist or any other kind of 'ist' they can think of.
In the world of the future, everyone will be expected to conform to these norms, and any deviation from them will be considered a crime. Individuality will be replaced by intersectionality. You will be told what you can and can't say, and free thinking and honest differences of opinion will be considered 'hate speech' and will also be a crime. You will have freedom as long as you conform.
They tried something similar in Germany in the 1930s and 40s with this thing called 'National Socialism'. We all know how that turned out.
I believe in the power of belief, that gives Humans the ability to take an untestable, unquantifiable, indefinable and entirely abstract notion like 'Romantic Love' and, based only on the power of belief, turn it into one of the most enduring and integral parts of our global culture.
Of all of the imagined realities that form the basis of Human society, love is surely the most powerful and influencial.
