pernicious pressures

The pressures surrounding us (work, economics, social, commerce) attempt to “decode” and disintegrate us under the pretense of giving ourselves back to us.

That is to say: you can’t find yourself by following the system’s logic (as it dissolves you).
More clearly, you are already “you” without capitulating to pernicious pressures and duplicitous promises.

More importantly, you already know what you are here to do (your purpose); you are looking to the system because you have not allowed yourself to embrace it.
