Hey guys i somtimes like to write stuff check this out :)
Its my outlook on society mind you im 13 so its not great :P
Life as a human is ruled by society; we live and act according to society’s demands.
Society can cause us to act differently to situations then we really should because of simple societal norms, we have come to accept this and allow ourselves to be controlled by society’s grasp.
We are slaves to the society’s ever changing values of what is right and wrong.
I walk down the same road, day by day, my path never changing, my goal unclear.
Society’s boundaries are confining me to a world of order and control, but this is no way to live, no way to spend my life.
Order and control are needed to prevent chaos, but this control has taken my freedom by stopping me from be being myself. Is there a balance between both? Maybe, but with society playing its part, no.
People may laugh, they may not listen, but they have been engulfed by society, and do not see beyond their lives of simple pleasures and simple actions.
Why cant we have we have a life where every day is different, and not just the simple facts of when I ate this, or what lessons or job I did today? Better that but what we see and do on much larger scales, is what I consider important.
We are like one fish in a huge ocean, a number in a database, insignificant and unimportant.
People judge me, because of who I am, must I change for societies social morals,
I am not cruel, evil or unkind, yet they see me as an enemy and an outcast of society.
Just because I am not a stereotypical teen, but a stereotype is just another societal norm.
People will always judge, they will judge you before you even talk, shouldn’t this its self be socially immoral?
Society is one of the greatest things to ever happen, but its changed so much and can be manipulated so easily by media and the government, that it is becoming a tool to mould the people of a certain country in a certain way.

Life is fun! Live life to its fullest and don't think about the bad, only the good. If it's fixable, fix it. If not, leave it. :P

this i would say are healthy and mature thoughts.
"We are like one fish in a huge ocean, a number in a database, insignificant and unimportant.
some poeple find religion, some people get careless and some people believe in nothing and accept things like it is. this is usually how we learn to live with our insecurities, and find meaning in our lifes.
but dont think to much about this, you will live and learn, no need to stress=)

me too. lol. im much more thoughtful than this kid, the only teenagers that are "slow" are the ones who decided to smoke pot, go to parties every night, and dont have a job. have to say, im none of those. i may be a little redarded when i think sometimes but there is one big world in the cranks inside my head. anyways...
overcome, you are a grade "A" fool. its hard to become one of those unless you voted for a person that will america further indebt and balm it on the last administration. then believe it too. yeah... always someone else to balm it on. back on topic now. "some people find... to live with our insecurities". the truth is, that is living life to the fullest if thats what you believe right? thats the fullest YOU can make it within your own mind. hence, no stress, living, learning and a lovley bunch of coconuts

Pity, well if you ever want to just chat about stuff, message me. It doesn't have to be scripted, I mean I'm all for a sociological debate. As such it shouldn't be too much of a stress on your brain power :P

When you talk to someone, do you ever think of what you'll say before
you talk? Of course you do, its only natural. Answer me this though:
Why? Its because your scared of being embarassed, made a fool out of,
being labelled something, or whatever. That, is not freedom. That is
being bound by social norms and expectations.

I do not claim to have it all figured out. What I put is my belief on it. People are welcome to their own opinions, infact I welcome them. If we all think differently it just proves to us, forced socialisation doesn't work. Otherwise we'd all believe what we were told to believe.
I, however, do not understand what you are getting at. As I said, it is all relative anyway so you must adjust to the specific culture you are in.
Of course on the internet it is different, as you said serious posts are made more often than not. Thats because your not face to face, and you can contemplate what your going to say. Its a little different, in the heat of a conversation you can hardly take back what you said and stuff. As such, your less likely to be deviant in how you act or what you say, because theres no delete button.
I agree, I try to act the same wherever I am, but it is sometimes not possible to do so. I act very differently to what I did a year ago before I moved, because I had a different peer group with different values and a different culture.
Yeah school is good proof of it. My sister for example puts on an accent just so she doesn't get mocked or misunderstood. Thats not right, she should speak how she normally speaks.
My advice to anyone is: study sociology sometime in your life. Its a very interesting subject. Infact my favourite.
