    The Quickest route to True Happiness is learning not to give a crap

    Itís fairly difficult to stop caring what other people think, but itís kind of mandatory if you want to live a life that makes you happy. Bare with me as I delve into a stream of consciousness. I think many people might feel the same way, and frankly, itís helped me to live authentically.

    I think social media is like a melting pot; facilitating the assimilation of the same standards of attainment. My social media scroll on Instagram is full of duck-lipped women who contour their faces using foreign objects and colourful serums. Itís full of houses and decor that look like they are straight out of a home magazine, yet lack originality, and are more or less the exact same image. Itís full of the same unoriginal hashtags and the same unoriginal declarations.

    Are we becoming Ďone personí as a whole? I think we need to snap out of it and realize itís really not that riveting when everyone looks the same, acts the same, and says the same thing. We accomplish nothing valuable or profound. In the end, weíre just wasting time focusing on stupid shit rather than the important things in life.

    It’s a lot of talk, and not enough action. We are a population with the most information than ever, and yet, we are the worst offenders of wasting time on minute and irrelevant topics and lack the motivation to actually do something productive with our lives.

    Many of us have the same “basic” pursuits: A job, a house, a spouse, a nice car, and enough money that we can buy whatever we want, when we want and never dry up the supply.

    But the cookie-cutter basics have become over-saturated and over-marketed, so that anyone who might want something out-of-the-box is considered a deviant in society.

    As I’m getting older (err, let’s say wiser), I’m reaching the point where I am driving away from what everyone else is doing, and making more of a conscious effort to just be “me.”

    I don’t care that I have imperfect teeth, or that most of my friends are married with children and I’m not. I live by this specific mantra: Love, Support and Be Grateful. I don’t really need your adulation or acceptance. I need it from myself. Because ultimately, I’m answering my own questions and living my own life.
