Name: Society never stops ~ 262.366

Society sucks . I saw a similar idea to this on tumblr but as a drawing and only with speech bubbles and I really wanted to turn it into a photo . I cut out speech bubbles with demands in them and stuck them on to black card , I then editted it so the background didn't look like paper . I made society a scribble to reflect how society is messed up , and how it's demanded things that are not always possible .

I also heard this today which made me stop and think : We're blaming 'society' , yet we are society . So to make it a better place , we must change ourselves first .

I stopped worrying about what society thought of me a long time ago and with that I found true happiness.

I don't like it when people want to be perfect, no one is perfect, and I believe no one really can. There's always going to be that one flaw in your life that you can never get rid of.

I absolutely hate society.... I don't hate anything at all really but society bugs me terribly. I saw a pic of a 10 year old crying as she looked at Victoria's secret and my heart broke right then and there. I've made it my personal mission ever since to promote respectful, confidence and happiness in every girl i meet. Maybe someday we can change society and redefine 'beauty'.

aw that is really sad tbh ): I know.. society can really suck. I used to have self-image issues (like I first dieting when I was 8) and it's kind of changed me as a person. I know what it feels to fall underneath the pressure of society which is why I try and inspire/teach as many people as possible to love yourself and stuff what society says aha

Oh i know right? We have even 5 year olds signing up for beauty pageants and putting loads of make-up on and even wearing corsets. Sorry btw that that happened to you, i'm glad you don't hopefully feel that way as much anymore.

That's very good! I hope there are many other girls doing the same out there, it seems many get sucked into promoting what society says too

I'll let society know when I decide to care about what they think of me. It's best to shut that door, and fly.
I just got an idea...
Awesome concept by the way.

I love the concept for this! The execution is really well done, too. I feel like the black background gives it a more serious feel, but not in a way that makes it stiff or uncomfortable. I like how you took a rather prominent problem in the world right now (well, at least to a lot of (read:most) teenagers in modernized countries), and put it into a picture that is easily recognizable and understandable to normal people. :)

People don't want to change and the few that do want to are treated differently.
But here we are with the question, "should we really care what others think of us?"

Nice art.
The cut outs are awesome.

I like the "NO" idea but the "I don't know what to say" works well too (they're 2 different things). :hug:
The way it feels for me is more like society is all around me, and their commands are written on spears they are throwing at me from every direction, plus some of them say "be normal" and "obey"
(Didja ever see the movie "They Live"?)
