Our society is manufacturing unhappy people. As a soon to be college graduate I’m in a state of panic brought on by the social expectations of securing a repetitive job. I’m supposed to settle. Climbing the next rung on this ladder to (supposed) success. Sad.
Did you know that depression is reported to be effecting more people than ever before? People waste away via this online game of likes. This life of dissatisfaction. We are taught that we must strive for recognition. “Look at me, aren’t I cool?!?” We have to be wealthy and buy the latest products to enhance our imperfections. We are never enough.
It’s time to unsubscribe from this thought process. Unplug. Find contentment beyond your tattered jeans or drawn on eyebrows. Get lost in a world of self-love.
I will not stifle my creativity, my urge to steep my life with stories and snapshots. Expressing myself through clothing that speaks to me instead of the trends that speak to other bloggers, magazines, and celebrities. Listen and trust myself. I will not be stressed looking for a job to fill society’s expectation. With my blog redesign, I’m ready to explore my thoughts and stop fretting about nonsense. Maybe my head is in the clouds. Maybe just maybe, that’s where it should be.
