Society then and now

Yes, as the human race we have come a long way. We've gone from wearing bonnets and dresses that cover our feet, to "booty shorts" and "tank tops". We have more technology, resources, and knowledge now. A lot has changed just in the past thirty years. However, one thing remains the same. We all want to fit in. We want to please others. We're constantly being told who we should be and comparing ourselves to others. It isn't fair to anybody. Sometimes, we need to take a step back and look at how small the cross we have to carry really is. Instead of thinking, "I should do... to be perfect in the eyes of others." we should think, "I should do... to be a better person because I want to." It makes a world of difference. Society and the media will always work together to make people feel bad about themselves, but it's not a competition. You have to love yourself before you can love somebody else. Yes, we all have flaws. Yes, we can accept those flaws and call it perfection. If you don't see it as a flaw, is it really a flaw? NO! It makes you human and it makes you who you are. Love the "flaws" and others will admire you for not caring what others think. If you're "living in the shadow" of somebody that you look up to, you won't be there for long. Just find what makes you who you are and that should be enough for anybody worth getting to know better. You won't always be where you are now. The Middle by Jimmy Eat World is the perfect song to describe what I'm saying. Don't care what others think, try anything and everything, don't buy into the "ideal look", people will always talk, things will get better. :)
