“It’s not always pretty.”
People all around the world think critically about their lives. The events that take place, the things we do, the way we interact with others. We compare, cry and question everything. We force ourselves to believe that we’ve got it so hard. We stress and worry. We become anxious and behave irrationally. What we have is just not enough. We over think and pass judgement. We’ve created a fast-paced world, and have become unreasonably selfish monsters with a major lack of patience and awareness.
People are mentally flustered, and need attention – now! We don’t just want to be seen, we want a connection. We want to be loved, recognized and supported, yet in control of everything. Too often, the need to be validated is sought from others. There’s a build up of doubt that becomes detrimental. Stress is a dangerous thing. Social media is a pool of deception. We are the masters of manipulation. Everything wears a mask. We fool others, but don’t expect to be fooled in return. The issue with people is that we always think we’re the only ones dealing with something. Yes, we’re intelligent and obviously capable of amazingness. We’re not always what we appear to be, but we have to “play the part,” because apparently we’re registered for some sort of competition. We value the arbitrary, and downplay life’s priceless gifts; our natural beauty, our precious talents, the ones who love us. Behind closed doors we stress and worry. We’re fragile when vulnerable, so that’s kept hidden. Advertise day life, fine print night life. Feeling stressed, confused, uncertain, perhaps envious, remember that we’ve all traveled different paths to get where we are today. All pretty things have roots, and they go through their seasons. Everyone goes through the seasons. Live an authentic life, push through and know that you’re an inspiration to someone.
