Something I have been pondering on for days and thought it is time to voice it out. Unfortunately we live in a world where the outside matters more than the inside and this is the tragedy of living in a superficial world.
We are more concerned with how someone looks than what kind of a person they are. Self-care in this superficial worlds means that we look after physical needs thus forgetting to resolve our feelings and emotions. Our relationships are more about finding the benefits we could get than providing them with what they owe in a relationship. Marriages are based on looks and financial status rather than a person’s character and goodness. Family gatherings are about looking at our best than greeting each other with a clean heart. Even when it comes to hygiene we care about wearing clean clothes and lots of scents but forget to physically keep ourselves clean.
I call all this the tragedy of living in a superficial world and sometimes I feel tired of being a part of it. Sometimes I am tired of battling to stay true to who I am and becoming what others want to see in me. This is one of the reasons why my friend circle is small because I like to remain among people who are honest and loyal in their everyday dealings. I like staying among people who are my friends because of who I am as a person and not to fulfill their own motives. I admire friendships that comprise of meaningful conversations rather than only enjoying the glitter and glam of this world together. I prefer people who have guts to say whatever they don’t like about me.
Tell me what are your views about this world? Are you and I on the same page? Do you find yourself a loner when it comes to this superficial world?
