Hi, I’m back with another blog. This time again I got hit by a random thought and went to overthink about it! But, that’s the way I function, without overthinking, hyping things, my day seems so incomplete. I’m my favourite person to talk to.
I may say that I go to myself for things I’m confused because I’m my favourite person but do I have a choice? We talk about things which seem “cool” according to society. We have stopped discussing the real matters, something that really bothers us, to each other. We have let the judgemental idealogies so much into us that we no more see it as a problem. Infact, we glare at ourselves when we do something that is odd according to the society.
We tag ourselves as progressive because we agree to the open ideas of gender equality and modern customs and technology. If a person adorns contemporary garments, he/she is seen as modernistic person but if the same person carry a traditional indian attire, he/she is automatically labelled as narrow-minded. Outer appearance is the only thing we need to decide whether he/she is capable of becoming your friend. You need to constantly maintain a bright face because people don’t bother about what actually you’re going through but they love to see you whine about all the foolish crunch.
Earlier there was a maturity to how we behaved with people. But now with the development of social media, there’re creeps who indecently blab to people anonymously because obviously he knows, no one is ever going to discover him.
Genuinely, we are becoming more narrow-minded with proportion to the constantly developing technology. We have misunderstood the concept of modernization, progression and liberation .
We people don’t have a real life, what we have is an amazing social media life. We have stopped smiling naturally and have started posing in various ways which even professional models don’t try. We are scared to show our real selves to the mass because it might make us look “non-classy”. We are judged by the number of followers we have, also with the captions we use on our images. These are the things which makes you look eligible to befriend people. You always need to have a smiling face, keep your fashion sense up because that’s what makes you look cool. And if you’re unable to do any of this you might end up destroying your self esteem and side yourselves to a corner because people only want to have connections with the likeable people. You can show your most amazing life on social media even though you have the most boring life. Actually, we create a fascinating life and in reality we lead the most colourless life. But hey! We have to pretend, right, to be on the top?
When we go to a place, we are only occupied by capturing all the minute details in which we forget to live the amazing moments. Earlier, clicking photos was the secondary task but now if you don’t have any images of a place you visited, people don’t really believe you; the latter acts like your proof.
We really need to sit back once and ponder upon what actually we’re trying to do and why we are trying to do it. We just have this one life which shouldn’t be spent on judging, comparing and faking it. Also, we need to start talking about the real issues we have and deal with it maturely and help others too, to overcome it.
