Reindeer Games

More than any other activity in the world human beings deeply desire being apart of something other people cannot. Whether it be your own clique, a church, a team, a cult, a fraternity or sorority, maybe even a place of work. Exclusivity is something we covet, and if it is in group form we deeply desire the feeling to be apart of it. What attracts us to these things is that it is made overtly obvious by the people involved that not all people can be apart of or reach the pinnacle required to join. But what is the end result of these reindeer games? Upon being apart of something exclusive are you better than you would have been as human being if you did these things alone? Is there a certain group think or herding of sheep you succumb to? These are all questions you must answer yourself. What I will encourage is individuality and no matter what factions you are apart of your ability to think as a individual with prove to be the most exclusive thing you could ever have.
