I Am Frustrated With Society

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 538 People

    Shave your legs, wear a push-up bra,

    brush your hair, wear tight clothes, be bone-showing skinny, wear make up.. Why? Because society has brainwashed girls through media, saying that doing these things is the only way you are beautiful. I said bullshit.

    People Who Feed On People Looking For Work

    This is going to be a rant! I'm sick and tired of applying to great sounding jobs, only to find out that the response is either trying to get my Social Security number, and every other bit of information, or those trying to get me to sign up for online college courses...

    Tall Poppy Syndrome Or Just Lazy And Indifferent?

    So, I'm at the shops and I'm a little peckish, and decide to get a bucket of hot chips. The only place that serves them is a kebab shop. Cool, I say to myself, I'm going to have chips soon! Request chips, lady says ok, puts a couple of handfuls in the fryer... so I wait for them...

    Self harm is defined

    as direct injuring of ones body right? Well the most often kind is cutting but i think theres another kind too. When someone constantly puts themself down and bullyies themself. Like saying theyre ugly worthless and fat. To me those words you say to yourself are just like each...

    I am so dissatisfied with the state world

    that I often get the nearly all-consuming desire to cease existing. If I knew that my death would mean something or change something, I would without a doubt pursue it. However, it is much more useful to live in protest than to die in protest. For, while alive, I can rally...

    People

    It's not society per se which frustrates me, it's the people in it who drive me mad. Not everyone but the intolerant, the over sensitive and the narrow minded are those i try to avoid.

    Can we all take a sec

    Oppression

    Society tells us that we have to be a certain way, live a certain way and act a certain way. It even seems to dictate a lot of our opinions. That would be okay if our society were not so ****** up. It doesn't recognize free love or peace. It doesn't try to make people feel good...

    Trash

    I get so annoyed at people who litter and don't recycle. Where do they expect all of the garbage to go? They have no clue on the impact that each and everyone one of us makes. Someone else will pick it up. It will blow out of my yard into my neighbors and then out of sight out of...

    I dislike close-minded people.

    People who just have no respect for other likes or dislikes because they are separate from there own. People who would rather make others feel terrible for liking what they want to like instead of what other people like.

    I don't know how we got to the point

    where killing our neighbors became so easy and common. people kill one another just for giving dirty looks, having arguments, even for material objects. One girl killed her grandmother because she took her granddaughters cell phone away as a punishment. A man killed another man...

    Society has set a limit on beauty

    and it makes everyone feel like they're garbage unless they're super skinny or super buff. Last time I checked, I didn't care what anyone said about me. I love my body for my curves, I love my frizzy thick hair, I love my grey round eyes, and I love me. I'm not that I'm no model...

    Society throws on this image of being a mighty

    Laws That Should Be Considered Or Removed

    Laws that would benefit society: 1. Since people who work are required to get drug tested, why shouldn't the people who receive benefits have to? It's the workers paying for the non-workers that they're even able to live rent-free without having to work. 2. Recycling should be...
