    My Experience With Life And Expectations

    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.

    Society throws on this image of being a mighty

    lion. Taking in its cubs, using them, teaching them to be perfect just like they are. When in reality society should be the cubs and us the lions, yes everyone makes a impact on our lives. But its the ones you cant bring yourself to tell the story of your time spent together...

    I, Me, Mine

    I feel like society has collectively lost its mind! Everyone seems to be all about themselves, what they can get, what's best for them, what will best serve their needs and to heck with everyone and everything else. People seem to be so unfeeling, suspicious, greedy and...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    So sick of how close minded society is.

    I appreciate that some things are difficult to understand if you have never experienced it. However, there is no need to belittle someone and make them feel pathetic, disgusting or worthless because you don't understand.

    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...

    Society is getting worse day by day.

    more guns, more drugs, more underage drinking which also leads to drunk driving, more crimes, more poverty, more 13-17 year old girls getting pregnant. It's just all sad and sick. it's not going to get better.

    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.
