Self-Help: Does modern society put too much pressure on perfection?

Does modern life hold us to an impossible standard? You have to have the perfect body, or a successful career, swiping until you find the best dating match, working on your personality so you can be the best possible version of yourself... because what's the alternative? Accidentally say something that upsets someone on social media... you lose your job. Don't look perfect? It reduces your prospects in life. Don't have the perfect positive attitude, you lose your friends. Don't get amazing exam results, you suck.


I don't know about you but I'm exhausted by all that rubbish, lately I've found myself avoiding social media, becoming reluctant to listen to the radio and even not bothering to make new friends... and the sad thing is it's made me happier because I feel like I can just be myself and relax a bit *gasp for breath* ... because... I'll be the first to admit that I'm definitely not perfect.

I don't workout everyday.

My room is a mess.

I have acne and stretch marks.

I'm an extremely fuzzy eater.

This post may have typos.

Sometimes I'm super moody...

and I'm human.

Just like you're human.

That means I make mistakes, that means I have qualities that some people may find annoying, that means I fail at things sometimes.


So, what should I do... I should post a bunch of photos without make-up, I should shave my head... I should announce I'm quitting social media and encourage others that's what they need to do to live their happiest life... be their best self and everyone else will join in...

Oh wait a second?

Isn't that exactly the same thing?

I'm still trying to show an ideal.


God, but sometimes it feels like everything has to be taken to an extreme. Each prank video has to be a little bit more dangerous than the last. Your photographs have to be better quality than that other persons'. That article titled, 'the effects of blueberries on your health' won't be noticed so it has to become, 'blueberries will kill you if you eat them, this is why you should avoid them at all costs'. The world has become so dog eat dog, that you have to always be going to extremes, always taking things to the next level to get noticed. It drips into our subconscious though and morphs us into little balls of nervousness who run to the shop to buy a bunch of skin care products or change our personality.

But how do we fix that? How do we truly go our own way without having to fit into a category?

And the biggest question of all: does any of this even matter?

Maybe I'm speaking some sense and change needs to happen... or am I just a girl who's having an extertensional (how do you even spell that it's a difficult word) crisis at 4am because she's had too much caffeine.

SHOP THE PRODUCTS 

And here are some products, which I earn commission for because despite all the stuff I've just said, I need to earn money somehow because unfortunately food and stuff doesn't magically appear you have to buy it somehow. Being an adult = hard.
