    Pressure from society

    Anyone notice this constant pressure from society to be a certain way?

    When I was in high school, I assumed it would be over after but it seems to be an issue for everyone of all ages these days. They have labels for everything while screamed not to use labels. You are encouraged to be yourself but then you have people who say being you isn't good enough. You can't be too feminine or too masculine. You need to follow trends of people you don't even know to be considered "cool". Thinking different is considered dangerous while thinking a like is encouraged.

    It is a mess. Anyone else feel this pressure?

    I do too.
    If you're interested by this topic you should read some Jean-Paul Sartre. He's written a lot about this.
    It's heavy philosophy but it's fascinating.
    Never overestimate mankind.

    Yeah? I will check it out. I tend to get in the mood for a good philosophical points of view after being "too out in the world" like noticing things that just aren't right in this world or make any sense.

    Pressure to conform to society's Standards has been something many of us have known since we were little. It's tough but you have to be tougher if you want to survive in this era.

    Pressure is always going to be there. Whether we admit it to ourselves or not, without being pressured, we wouldn't be who we're meant to be. It's common to want to just be yourself but who are we really kidding, we all want to be more. I think of pressure as a driving force that propels me to achieve more than is in the scope of my vision, the whole pressure being necessary to mine diamonds thing..

    Don't worry. It's not just you.

    No one's gonna' give you a map. You've gotta' walk your own path.
