Society is the broken one, not me

It's hard to remember that society is the broken one and not me. But it's true. 


We are all human beings: our atoms collected in a certain, precise sequence for a reason - you are 'you' on purpose. Even outside of our aesthetic I believe everything happens for a reason, and therefore, everything that has molded you into who you are today was no accident. But this is hard to remember when you're questioning your beliefs and wishing for blissful ignorance. It's hard to remember when you wish you could tell yourself "think of the money" when you're dreading going to work, or when you wish you didn't believe people shouldn't work for bits of meaningless paper to pay for our basic human rights. 

It's hard to remember that society is the broken one and not me. But it's true.


Some days, I wish that I didn't care, that I wasn't aware of all the damaging social constructs floating around our earth, infecting delicate minds into believing they're not good enough as they are. But I am aware and I do care, so all I can do is to keep reminding myself, and you, that it's okay. It's okay to care, it's okay to feel too much, it's okay to go against the grain and to break the 'rules' that society has created as long as I'm acting in alignment with my soul. Deep down we all know and feel what is right and what makes us happy, so as long as I do that instead of what society tells me I should be doing, I know I will live an enchanting life that I am proud of. 

What's one thing society has made you feel insecure about?

  1. Thank you for sharing this. It makes me feel much more normal to read that others feel the same way too. Most of the times I am too empathic and it is not easy to hide my feelings for me.

  2. Yep, I think sometimes on my darker days I realise that yes, ignorance can be bliss. But then I wouldn't want to live my life blind and under the control of society. Society tries to tell me everyday that the things I am doing to improve mine and other peoples lives are not going to work and there's no point in it all, there's no point in trying to change it because it's bigger than us and that terrifies me. But then I see that we can break down this huge wall with little things and yes, it will take longer and it wont be an instant change but when it does change it will be as you say enchanting and that's what keeps me going and fighting the good fight.
