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.

very true, perfection itself doesn't exist :aww:

It's just a word that can't really be erased from time.

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
