It is so hard now to be a young person in today’s society. We are told that we do not work hard, but we are working several jobs to get by. We are told that we are narcissistic, but we talk to people. It seems like our friends don’t want to be with us or we all just feel alone at times or we need some space to exit the world and it can honestly be incredibly hard.
Pardon me, but don't we want to escape the cruel reality of the world? Don't we want to believe that when we leave we made an impression on the world? The thing, it, though, we all seem to go by unnoticed in a crowd of people- just sometimes there, but not really there.
We use social media because we want to be noticed; we are not getting any recognition from others in the outside world. If you are confident and you think you are talented and smart, you are seen as conceited by the ones around you. A person that is all three things is just not possible. You have to be one of the three, and that is simply not fair. We are more than just our appearance and our physical appearance does not dictate the mind that we hold within us. Reality is cruel, but reality can also be amazing. Reality can be a dream. We may love life so much that we are told that we can’t distinguish fantasy from reality. Why can’t reality be a fantasy and make us happy beyond belief? Shouldn't that be the goal? To have reality be better than our dreams?
We should be able to do what we love because if one is doing what he or she loves, it does not feel like work. It feels like your dharma. Love life, be proud to be beautiful, smart and talented. We shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to others because we all have different gifts and that is what makes us who we are. Everyone has the potential to amount to something great, to achieve the impossible and amount to whatever they choose to. The world is filled with new adventures. Be your own superhero and if you are beautiful, smart and talented, use that a bring good in this world and conquer of force of darkness that is always in the back of our minds.
Be bold, be kind, be modest, and for the love of everything right with the world- just be you.
