    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...

    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...

    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...

    why we feel the need to put each other down all the time. We can accomplish so much more with love.

    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.

    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...

    I am so dissatisfied with the state world

    why people can't see that we're in this together. I'm sick of watching people treat each other like crap as if they think it's okay. It's NOT okay. Maybe if we stopped thinking of people as men, women, black, white, gay, straight etc. and just thought of each other as people...

    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.

    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...

    What if we were standing on the moon,

    looking down at Earth? I imagine we would feel something akin to patriotism. Except it wouldn't be pride in our country, it would be pride in the beautiful planet that we ALL share. Maybe then we'd realize that we're all in this together.

    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.
