you ever just felt like some of these animals just don’t get “you”…
i have been feeling this way lately.
it seems to ping louder each day.
it has me wondering if that’s why i’m single.
even doing this blogging thing,
i haven’t approached it like all the popular ones.
it is a lonelier journey when you stay in your own lane.
i live my life that way.
sometimes i swerve into others because i stand out when i don’t fit in.
i know a lot of animals within my forest,
but only a select few understand me.
social media can be a dangerous thing.
it will have you thinking you’re a weirdo compared to others.
at every ribbon cutting
smokin’ hookah or weed
look flawless in selfies and live action video
working out 24/7
…and then there is “you”.
“you” aren’t doing those things.
that makes you different.
when you try and attempt to be “that”,
they say you are “trying too hard” or “screaming for attention”.
that explains taking down your selfies when you don’t get any “likes”.
the crazy part is,
when you show your personality to the world,
it seems like no one ever notices or even cares.
So what do they want from “you”?
they ostracize you for being yourself,
but they talk about you for being the same.
no wonder we admire “the kardashians”.
they are accepted for all their foolishness,
no matter what they do,
and they are still put on a pedestal.
kim was on the cover for forbes and all she does is take selfies and wear a corset.
it’s crazy how the world pushes you to “be yourself”.
i often feel like it’s from a “white privilege” perspective.
blacks have it much harder.
it’s like a set up so you can’t win,
especially when the world doesn’t seem to even like “you”.
lowkey: and why do they finally get “you” once you come up?
i feel that is everyone who is famous story.
