Living in this century is the most difficult thing. 😨No one knows what to follow or believe. You’ll sit down, daydream about the kind of life you want to live. As soon as you snap out of it, you’ll realise that there’s a great chance it won’t happen. :'(Why? Because there’s so many movements against everything that if you choose wrong you won’t even make it to the first part of your dreams. But the truth is your dreams will never come true in this fast changing world of ours. 👿
I haven’t lived that long on this earth but I’m sure dreams were better to fulfil a century ago than they are now. You’d wake up and think to yourself that you knew you were going to get married in about two years, and fair enough it usually did happen. 😅These days you’ll tell yourself that only to find that after five years you’re still single and searching. It doesn’t end there! 😬You think to yourself, that you’re going to buy that house but when you think you’ve saved enough, you realise the prices have gone up. 😂Today, life couldn’t be any better than it was yesterday. You stand at this bus stop everyday, waiting to go to work, there’s these people who you see everyday and never talk to. The difference between today and a month from now, is the way they will be dressing. Today it’s a long dress that is not at all that figure fitting, next month will be a short-short that is so tight you can see their bum dimples. A century ago, houses stayed the same price, a century ago, everyone wore the same, rich or poor, young or old, it was covering their body. I guess things never stay the same but where do you draw the line with it.😐
I think we are too accepting of things these days. If science says vomiting is good for you then so shall most people do. If a celebrity says having a big bum is better, then hell you’ll do squats until you get one or for people with genes that don’t give up, you’ll probably get some implants. ;)If the politician says everyone should have a day job, then so be it, even if you work 12 hours a week. If the advertisement says you should shave your hair to support cancer, most people will do it. How many of us stop to think about what we’re doing? 😓How many of us are actually on a diet that works for us or wearing clothes we’re comfortable in? We hang around people and sometimes we wonder why we’re still friends with them, only because we don’t actually share anything in common with them, but if networking is what makes you socially accepted then I guess you could put up with it. 😫
You know there was a time when I felt so insecure of my natural hair because it wasn’t long enough or silky enough. 😭I know we’re all just human beings but where has the uniqueness gone to? I mean individuality not groupies. I remember when I was a kid at school, I hung out with everyone, but when I came to college, well I hung out with no one. I really didn’t fit with all the “big label” students, or the “nerdy” students.😣 Everyone had a clique and because I’d grew up hanging around with everyone, it was hard to put me in one particular place that I could fit in fully. It was either that or change.😯 I once asked my friend why she dated a black guy, she said that to her, he wasn’t a “black” guy but just a guy she loved. This other woman told me she liked being a housewife, it gave her great joy to cook and take care of her family. I asked a guy why he preferred to work than stay home, he told me he’s better at working a nine to five than he is at doing house chores, another preferred staying home because he felt closer to his kids and that he didn’t want them being looked after by a nanny. 😆
Everyone is an individual. Some love walking around naked, some love horror films. Does it make us less human? No it doesn’t. We are always trying to blend into society. Sometimes we’ll stop being who we are just because of a stereotype but by not being yourself you’re following a trend that society has given us.😱 I laugh at myself sometimes because I try so hard to be different, but then I notice that by being different I’m not winning I’m actually just following society. I know it doesn’t seem to make sense but have you ever thought why, the reason behind all your actions? Well if not all, most of them? Okay I’m going to use this example of being big and too skinny. We all know that being big or too skinny is not healthy, whether it’s inherited or not. But look at the world and tell me if we are less like that? People who’re big say it’s their body and it’s empowering to accept yourself the way you are and the start hating on skinny people, same goes to being skinny, all in the name of empowerment? Few people really know how to use that word. You’ll find two people who believe in feminine empowerment but have different views on nudity for women, so hatred is created, all for the fact that everyone is either trying to be different or accepted. People start movements which sometimes don’t even make sense. 😰
I never felt the need to voice my views on things like this because they have never really affected me, up until now anyways.:twisted: I’m older now and the adult world is very different, everything that made sense when I turned 18 no longer does now, because you realise that you actually don’t have much power over anything,well except on your kids, all because people have become ignorant of themselves. I mean when you’re young it’s only a small clique you have to deal with but when you’re older it’s a lot bigger than that. 😷 It’s like saying a particular president isn’t right for the country, even if you know two people who agree, you have to convince a thousand more where that came from.
All I’m trying to say in this jargon filled post of mine is that we’re losing sight of what really matters. 😧People always try to fight society but the only way to break free from society is from within and acknowledging that we are all unique beings. We are giving too much credit to science, technology, celebrities, friends and family. We need to be internally focused so that the world can be a better place. Beliefs are just reactions to things that become habit to our brains. So we can easily change them in a way that is best for our lives. Why keep on living to expectations, why live a life with no meaning? I know I won’t. 😎I won’t be oppressed by other people’s ideas, I will accept them but know that I have my own values and standards. If it’s a view shared then it’s good but that’s just who I am not what the human race is supposed to be.☺
Humans are unique. We might share similar traits with others but there’s always going to be something different. The only way there can be peace is accepting that they’re different. As I have said there will always be that person who disagrees, so I’m guessing someone out there disagrees with everything in this post. We are just humans but if there was a balance of the opposites I think the world would be a better place. ☺
