    One like me is not supposed to integrate with

    society. I mean I'm supposed to but not. Ultimately, it's how it would benefit me. How will it feed my curiosity? How will it avoid guilt? It's good but it's bad. I hate myself yet I love myself and I hate everyone from what I've seen so far. On the other hand. They don't care...

    I really do not understand this duality of

    human society. Men, throughout history, have always acted compulsorily in search of conquests, valuing possessions, money, industrial production, trade relations above all other values, the general scenario prevailing over the achievements and individual merits, which are left...

    Or maybe just just whole human society,

    I feel like I am a spectator, I feel like I'm studying the human race without belonging to it, not implying that I am above it, just different. I sometimes think I would like to be a ghost for a while, to watch people going through their daily life, even better would be if I...

    My Protective Nature Arouses This Instinct

    Yes, I do indeed sometimes feel like I do not belong in society.  I say this not out of self-pity - on the contrary - I say this out of a sense of avuncular protectiveness.  You see, I have visited society, and I know something about it.  For example, I...

    Pressured By Society

    It drives me crazy, sometimes, the things that modern society finds so important -  looks, status, possessions...and even though you don't want to care, society presses its values on you and measures you by those values every time you step out the door.

    For instance, School.

    I don't know about you, but at my school society is pretty ****** up. Maybe it's because you spend 7 long hours surround with people that care more about what kind of shoes you wear, or how much makeup you can put on your face, or how you dress, who you hang with, the number of...

    Does it not sound like all beings,

    doesn't mean they are looking for attention. 'Attention seeking' is the word I hear a lot from this generation, it annoys me so much. So because I tell you I'm under confident in my looks it's for attention? lol I'm sorry but ill keep my thoughts to myself and not tell anyone...

    The truth is that I do not think life is poetic

    Where Are We Heading?

    The society we live in is changing. Changing for worse. I'm afraid of '1984' coming. Coming soon. Maybe not in my lifetime, maybe not my children's, but soon, much too soon. Because, what are we doing to avoid this? We do NOTHING. We do nothing to oppose the government, we do...

    You ARE society and you have a right to belong.

    The feeling that you don't belong means that your intuition is spot on correct that there is something wrong with the idea of society. Stop bitching and get involved to see it evolve to your liking!
