society

By the people, for the people.

Before you leave the house, you ask yourself "What will people think about me?" You buy new clothes, and you ask yourself "What will people think of me?" You want to express your true self, but you ask yourself the same exact question. Today we live in society based off that one question: "What will people think about me?" Why are people so worried to express their true selves? People are so concentrated on other people's opinion that they are afraid to show who they really are. The real question of society should be "Why?" Why do we have to impress others? Why can't we be ourselves? Why do people have to judge others, when they aren't perfect themselves? We all have these questions, but today's society is all about how we look on the outside, rather then who we are inside out, but why can't we change that. Our world can be full of positivity if we try. People can feel more secure, and express who they are.

I don't give a shit about what others think, but it doesn't help one bit. The world is still a shitty place. If Trump blows it all too kingdom come, it won't be soon enough for me.

TODAY? Are you joking me?! You think today people have to care about what other's think?? Try living a 100 years ago, you wouldn't last a day man.

Today we're doing much better, with individualism becoming more and more pronounced and favored to etiquette for better or worse.

Character is more important than outward show, the media perpetuates this vanity and companies profit from it. People should try not to judge others hypocritically, for they will be held to those same standards on the judgement day.

Matthew 7.2: 'For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.'

1 Corinthians 4.5: 'Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.'

1 Samuel 16: '7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.'

I agree with you about character, but why must you bolster your argument with Bible verses? Are you afraid your ideas are good enough on their own?

It's true. I don't think the root cause of this is natural, I believe it's a taught behavior from how adults view celebrity culture and how they want to be in that lifestyle. They're constantly attacking each other and pushing for different ideologies that discrimate against people based on their backgrounds. I think that we somehow taught ourselves that we have to be better than everyone else around us when we should just be the best versions of ourselves. But really it's not like anyone really knows that answer to why we are the way we are.
