A cognitive dissonance gap I encounter often is with Men who have done all the "right things" you are supposed to do to be considered responsible...they have a job, they went to college maybe, they've tried to make people happy

But they don't THINK for themselves...
Their paths have been given to them, sometimes very explicitly. They have little depth to their lives because they've followed a formula of what they are supposed to do.

And they found empty, or dissatisfying, or flat out disappointing.

They are self-sufficient, but....
they don't have true agency.

This realization is unsettling, a proverbial look in the mirror and seeing you've been deceived, but not knowing what to replace it with.

Agency at its most simple is self-determination
Your own opinions, not lying to yourself, or indulging someone else's lies.

You will never have intuition nor instinct if you rely on others for decision making

Choices are fate, and a man's fate is not his own when choices are put upon him.
