How People View You

Social media has completely taken over are lives like we are in another reality.

People posting infographics about racial inequalities of people acting like they care but the same energy disappears a week later

I promise we didn’t follow you for your political opinion but now you’re just follower acting like you care about social issues, stop it.

People will tell you right from wrong thinking they know everything off the basis of them watching CNN, FOX, or some other news station. Do you actually know politics or do you listen to your parents speak about politics so you can seem correct?

I’ve been thinking about this a lot & as humans, we need to heal & connect. A documentary called “The Social Dilemma” really puts everything perspective of what I’m talking about.

If this offends you in any way shape or form. I am not sorry and will never be sorry for speaking my mind and how I feel.

We also have people posting naked on Social media platforms and have millionaires looting stores from Black Lives Matter movements and decide to make a music video afterwards. The funny part about that is more or less we want people to view us in a certain light.

Do I necessarily care? Not at all. But am I talking about it right now? Well, obviously…

Asides the point, people will never meet your exact expectations of how you want them to be and how you need them to act.

We are built off attention and being desired for my generation. Social media has been bigger than its even been. We will see tik tok dances of the president trying to get his message across to the country.

We try so hard for knowing how people view us, we just act however we want & not have to fit societal norms.

Accepted or Rejected

Accepted or rejected.

In a society full of doers and under achievers, we are two things.

Accepted or rejected.

Now, this can apply to a lot of people.

So, it may apply to you as we speak.

Then, you will really start to wonder if it does.

While, people are worried about fitting in.

Stand out from the rest of society.

Jump out with a smirk on your face as we speak.

Fly like you could never before.

So, you know what all that all has in common?

Sounds like people who are not liked.

That means to stand out.

Separate yourself from the crowd.

Ride in your own lane from the others.

Jump in head first and do your own thing.

Although, that might be dramatic, it needs to be done.

Accepted or Rejected
Walk your own path and stand apart from the crowd.

Actively as people want to fit in so badly.

Literally makes no sense.

In this lifetime, I’d rather cook up something bizarre than to be liked.

Extraordinary people bring extraordinary pleasures in life.

Stop caring so much about what people think of you.

I have heard this so many times I can count.

Leaping out to something amazing than being stagnant.

So, act out and stand out.

Society has a weird way of telling us what we can and cannot do.

I would hate to be like everyone else.

Where’s the fun in that?

As you’re reading this, please do not succumb to society’s standards.

Each of us have to be something that we are proud of.

So, why not be apart of your world?

Do your own thing and don’t look back one bit.

As someone who is called “weird” often, I embrace it all the way.

In short, never become what society wants you to be.
