I truly, truly hate human society

Recommended Posts

Why is EVERYTHING in life about impressing OTHERS? Why should I forsake everything I care about and enjoy, just to satisfy OTHERS? Why does society tell you to "be an individual" and then the first thing they do to you when you ARE a true individual is ridicule you for it? Why does society endlessly ridicule me for not being man enough, not being grown enough, not being good enough? And then why does society call me a 12 year old for being upset about being ridiculed? I LIKE watching cartoons and playing video games, I DON'T LIKE hanging out at a club somewhere getting drunk and hitting on women who I care nothing for. WHY won't society leave me alone? You ridicule me, THEN ridicule me for calling you out on it! I want NOTHING to do with it!

It is only about impressing others if you care what they think...

 

Exactly. The moment you cease to give a horse's behind about what anyone thinks, their opinions become some background noise you can easily tune out.

 

In other words, people have a right to have opinions....even about things that are none of their business. You have an equal right to completely ignore their opinions.

I'm hearin' ya. It's like some sort of race to be popular and "normal". I had an incident last night that made me stand up and think and take stock of my life. I don't think the person intended me any harm, however, it's made me think.

 

If somebody is criticising you, listen and tell them they have a right to their opinion. When they've finished telll them you disagree with them and why. This will bring them undone every time. Anything other is just them letting of steam and being petty. Remain calm throughout this experience. Unfortunately, it is our responsibility to "educate" them!

 

Edit: I know it's aweful and i don't want to make anyone else feel bad, but i've recently come to the decision that i must condemn before i accept people. In other words, instead of waiting for them to break my trust and dignity, they start off at 0 and have to earn it. I know it sounds cynical, but it's the way i've had to become because too many people have let me down lately and life feels like one gigantic climb to the top, with most people not caring about who they step on or crush on their way up or over to where they want to "be".

society. Its one warped world we live in and I am not gonna conform. I will do what I want to do. People are brainwashed by the media IMO. Films like "American Pie" teach people its okay to go out and have sex with some random stranger, films like "Friends With Benefits" have caused some sort of freaking epidemic. Its insane.. Men feel inadequate if they don't look like Jacob out of bloody twilight and lots of young women are trying to dress like porn stars..

 

then we have stupid women falling in love with Christian grey not realizing that the ridiculous book is about a narcissist who is gonna destroy this idiotic, co-dependant "damsel in distress".. if it wasn't so twisted it might be funny. The author forgets to tell you what happens AFTER you tie yourself to such a messed up man.. and gawwd how the character of Anna irritated the life out of me with her weak pathetic soppy personality.. I don't know how this book sold worldwide-honestly.. If i wrote that book Ana would be strong, shed see through his BS and trick him into falling for HER-then she would leave him broken like he did with numbers 1-15..

 

this book teaches women that they should feel special for being the "chosen one" the only loved one out of a long list of others who couldn't win over his heart.. please dont make me puke (RMFE)

 

so many sheep following the leader.. so many messed up people who have no mind of their own, who will do anything to try and fit in.. 90% of people actually p me off in one way or another..

 

anyway rant over

Where do you people live?... People like that only form a part of society as a whole at least in my town, actually there are a lot of free thinkers and spirits here. I must say I cringe when I hear story's about what it's like in the US though, but stop blaming society as a whole. You are a part of that society and you are infact human yourself. And infact what I see in the post above me is someone who assumes he knows what goes on in most people's minds. Your not superior to anyone, regardless if they want to watch american pie or read some book. Sounds crazy but if you don't like being judged maybe you should stop judging others yourself.... I would take it as a huge insult to my intelligence if someone just assumes I'm a brainwashed sheep for the things I like to do with my life. Give people some more credit...

Lol i was not judging all people-just ranting about a minority. I wasnt saying all people who watch these things or read the book are sheep. I was saying people who copy these films or think Ana is how women should be etc are sheep.. plus i wasn't saying that i get judged-i don't

 

just enjoying a rant about a few things that p me off and i agree with you. I am glad I don"t live in the US.

You know Shelty, you don't have to read that book...

 

 

Sabine, I'm guessing you're late teens, early twenties? You need to get yourself some new friends. Go hang out at the comic store, seriously.

The older you get, the less you will care about how other people run their lives. The less the things they say about you will matter to you. In fact, the older you get, the more people are just worrying about themselves and you will have to deal with it less.

 

The only thing in life you can control is yourself. So worry only about that. Don't waste your energy and time when you could be doing things you actually want to with it.

I guess it depends where you live. I am in North East US and have heard horror stories from places like California. I feel that the west coast is messed up. Everyone out there is thin obsessed and too many people searching for fame and trying to be cool. Like you, I do what I want. I've never been called names or denied a job here because I am obese. I don't go out to clubs or sleep with strangers. I think it's a waste of time. I used to date a man from California who used to be under a lot of pressure to do that stuff. I don't know but that whole culture is unappealing to me.

I love cartoons... every date i had knew it. One girl laid with me watching 80s toons.

 

Just be you, and be confident in who you are. A cool and confident guy can show me his butterfly collection - and yes, my head would be like... "what... is this dude real?" but at the end of the day, hes still cool and confident, because its a state of mind, and that trickles down to the rest of the body.

 

I once had a girl laugh at my gijoe shirt. I just looked at her and asked her what the point was? Does she like me, "do you need attention- because i dont want to give you any, and you are making that hard for me by putting my name in your mouth". Its no surprise these people are insecure, and they are all looking for that little hole to fit in because they are not brave and bold enough to stand out amongst the crowd.
