I grew up in a generation where you should look good, use expensive things and impress other people. I also witnessed how other people can influence someone just by sharing a single post on social media. If they do this thing, everyone else will also do the same thing. Others are in denial but the truth is they’re just unaware of it. One perfect example is the clothing trend, which changes every single day due to the fast changes of the market. Models who can influence other people easily in what they should be wearing and what not. The thing is, nothing’s wrong it. I’m pretty sure even though there were no social media years ago, the power of influence was still there. I believe it is upon us. Nothing’s wrong when you feel inspired by someone’s work that you also want to create your own version of it. How you visualize it, and how you would want other people to see it as your own.
What matters is the truthfulness to yourself. Knowing who you really are and what you really want to do. The sad reality now is that, most of us choose to pretend to be someone we are not just because it is easier. Living in a life where in you want to impress other people. Some are even willing to give up their passion and who they really are just because the world isn’t noticing them. The thing is, it won’t be easy to be yourself. Because, we are all different and unique. If you want the world to see who you really are, you have to work for it. You have to do every single thing to get what you want. Everytime a temptation comes to your head saying that, it will be a lot more easier to be just like the others.. it’s completely your choice if you’re gonna listen to it. You can do that, but it’s just like saying that you gave up. You gave up because you failed to show who you really are. Instead, you chose the faster temporary road of no real self satisfaction. But again, nothing’s wrong with that. It’s completely your choice.
I’m writing this not just because I’ve experienced the same thing but it’s because I’ve seen a lot of people giving up who they are recently just to get the good impression from the people who doesn’t even care about them. Remember that these kind of people will always be there and you don’t have to worry at all. For as long as you are completely happy in what you are doing and who you are as a human being (considering you’re not hurting somebody in a any way), you will be fine. I’m not saying that life will be perfect, but it’ll just be a lot more better.
