In situations where society has said its not right to engage in conversation with someone, should we? Or do we have limitations? Based off our wants and needs we would simply call the person up and have a talk with them about whatever we want really. But society now has pressures on what we do and say. That if we do talk to that person daily we are never going to be able to separate ourselves from them. That we will always use them as a crutch to fall back on. So should we follow our hearts, which is told to us on basically every occasion that we are in a predicament. Or should we follow the pressures of society? In some cases does society have our best interest at heart?
You make me feel like a failure,
like someone who has done everything wrong,
someone who you can't be around.
You seem to look at me with disappointment,
that I was such a mistake
I was never mean't to be.
You seem to be annoyed with me,
my everyday inquiry,
I long to hear you speak
You try to lift me up,
but I am too heavy,
and soon I will be dropped.
You are my greatest happiness,
I am scared of my love for you,
my best friend even when i'm blue.
You would be appalled at my saying such things,
this all seems true.
Why is there such a negativity around being alone? Especially in college it's as if people can't do anything themselves. What ever happened to just being happy and comfortable in your own skin? Why is there such a NEED to have someone be with you, especially when you eat? God forbid you don't have a person to try and form a conversation with while shoveling a sandwich into your mouth and making sure you make every bite look as attractive as possible! Why can't people just be by themselves to let their thoughts roam free and just be happily in the moment? Or is it the idea of being alone and in the moment the scariest part for people?
When you say your "I do's" you aren't also planning on signing your name on the designated line saying you will see your future children every other weekend. But should this generation be planning for that? Or are they already? Why does it seem like getting in a relationship is nothing but unrest? You are supposed to feel comfortable but not too comfortable or your partner will find someone else because you aren't interesting anymore. How awful is that? What ever happened to wanting to be with someone because you truly love them? Rather than wanting to be entertained and amused? As soon as you feel as though you finally have found "the one" you are lifted up out of your comfort and placed back into the unknown. Are we ever allowed to fell at ease?
"Chivalry now a days is getting a good-morning text". I'm sorry but that's not chivalry that's saying "I couldn't stop thinking about you", he isn't doing anything but pressing a send button. So therefore I have to ask the question, is chivalry dead? Will the current generation and the ones that follow change the meaning of chivalry, or will it completely die off? Now i'm not talking about putting your jacket in a puddle for a woman, but at least hold the door. Simple things that the majority of young men don't even seem to think about. Chivalry used to be a way to win someone over, and show respect. Now a days it seems to be looked at as extra effort that isn't needed. Are men becoming less respectful of woman, lazier, or both? If there isn't respect or effort, what's left?
Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go
