a rant from yours truly
You know what I do not understand? How can everyone tell me not compare myself to others when my entire life is on a scale. I’m always being compared to others. My intelligence is compared to others by my gpa or a score i get on a test. my weight is on scale. even guys put my beauty on a scale of 1 to 10. even the thing i own i need to have the most expensive thing to have sense of worth. I’m always looking for reassurance of my worth in others opinion. People want to get the most likes on facebook just feel that their looks and thoughts are validated. why do we give so much control to our society? why do we care so much? this need and strive to be perfect. its a useless goal because funny thing is no one is perfect! but every day we try to enhance ourselves not for our own benefit but to fit the norm of society. If i wasn’t in class today from 8 am till 2 i would take the time and take a walk outside and enjoy the beauty. if i didnt have the need to be perfect i wouldn’t care that the guy i like is talking to another girl. I honestly get no benefits of trying to make myself perfect. The only thing i get is disappointment, anger, stress, frustration, and lack of self worth. I just want for a hot second not to care about my grades, money, my looks, or anything that people can compare by. I just want to enjoy my life and be happy. Is that so much to ask for?
All of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
Look at the wonderful mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone
