There is a big difference between understanding a hundred possible ways of approaching life and discovering the right and honest way to live your own. Despite being inundated with relationship theory and tactics, there is still the simple matter of suffering from a lack of meaning.
These are the issues that were explored on the Mentawai Tribe of Indonesia episode of BBC series Tribal Wives --where modern women place their, for one reason or another, somehow lacking lives on hold to answer some of the big questions that won't go away for them (be it failed relationships or workaholic tendencies) by going to live with an Indigenous Tribe for a while.
From the few episodes I have seen, the exercises seem to reach similar conclusions for the participants: a re-acquaintance with the simpler inner needs for friendship, motherhood, and belonging.
To me, the most existentially revealing recurring theme is the acceptance and understanding the "Tribal" people featured have for other cultures, without having the instantaneous need to abandon, hide or question their own expression of how they value and honor life.
It seems that the more commitment we have to our own path, the more respect & understanding, it seems, we have to give to others. Being true to your own heart is not an insult to others' choices.
I was thinking of this in reference to those who are so angry in attacking women and girls who believe in modesty. If they are happy with their own lives, why this need to make fun of those who believe in modesty?
