“You’d would be surprised” I told my cousin. He was talking about the time period in which we live in. His theory was that today we put too much emphasis on what everyone thinks. To be honest, Im sure everyone has always cared about what other people think. It was just always in a different vestige. Now we have Instagram, and we try to impress people on the basis that our life looks cooler than that of our peers. You know what, it might. Interestingly enough, two hundred years ago, we looked at how many slaves we each owned and tried to validate our lives based on how little we had to do for ourselves. We’ve always cared about what others think. Either way, its fucked.
Now days, we are inexperienced. Looking on towards those who dominate in regards to how many followers they have rather than the substance they hold in their hearts. I try to imagine it like this: Its like were in an olympic sized pool, floating, however, we never see the deep end of the pool. Always forced to sit in the shallow end with our water wings and foam noodles, looking envious at the sleek experienced ‘professionals’ from afar hoping that one day we may be able to take a leap from the diving board, fearlessly.
If we have the know how to take a leap without having to watch the pompous, why is it that were so captivated about how the professionals do it? Can’t we just do it on our own? If you do what you love, and you love what you do, should there be any other worry….?
