This generation needs to shut the fuck up. I understand that I am contradicting that very statement when I continue writing but it is rather hostile statement and I feel the need to explain myself. These days we have so many outlets for our thoughts, artwork, and imagination, but we are flagrantly misusing those outlets to express ourselves in a way that does not represent who we truly are. Social media enables us to create an identity, similar, but not genuine to our real self. But that is just part of the problem. We have so many outlets to construct an identity for ourselves and we never shut up. I am guilty of this as well. (If you count the amount of tweets I’ve sent about Mexican food you’d realize what I mean.) But in all seriousness, we are now able to send out our two cents on every single thing that crosses our mind to the entire Internet with out even thinking twice. So now as a generation we have the mindset that everyone wants to hear what we think. No one fucking cares that I want a donut. So why force that upon my dear, dear followers? Because I can. Because that is who I am in that very moment. Because that makes me stand out.
Ahh standing out. Something our generation values oh so highly. I probably value it more than I should but hey, there I go again standing out! I have no problem with expressing individuality—I actually really love it—but there is a vast difference between being an individual and being “different”. Being “different” is pretty much a synonym for shopping at Urban Outfitters, dip dyeing your hair pink, and wearing unnecessary shit on your fingernails. I find this phenomenon extremely ironic. “Be different, everyone else is doing it!” Should be the slogan for this generation. If you’re being “different” and so are a million other teenagers, then are you really different at all? Everyone is so caught up in “being different”, and “standing out”, that no one is being an individual which—excuse me if I’m wrong—but I thought, was the whole point. I’m going to get off my high horse and admit that I do shop at Urban Outfitters… and I like it! I’m wearing leggings and an oversized sweater. Go ahead, I don’t care if you wear that too, but don’t act like it’s so goddamn groundbreaking. The second you start intentionally trying to be different, the entire purpose is defeated. Originality isn’t about “being different” when it’s in style, originality comes from being your genuine self. So stop trying so hard to act like you don’t try at all. Be yourself and you’re automatically going to be different in the realest sense of the word. Ok yeah, now I’m actually going to shut the fuck up.▲5 | reblog
