  1. 12/10/04 04:13 am - Real.

    It hit me earlier, and the more I think about it, the more I know the answer. Is there anyone real out there anymore, or is everyone just part of some following? Are there any real people out there anymore. The ones who don't go around with some gimmick they've attached to just because it looks cool at the time, while it slowly fades away and a new one forms so they'll always have a place to belong? Think about it. You know the answer. No, there isn't. Okay, so maybe there's a rare few (a few, when in comparison to the world, keep in mind, can mean several) that are, but otherwise, no. It's sickening to me. As an artistic person, an individual, a unique individual, different from everyone else in the fact that every person is born unique, that someone would want to conform and people have to survive socially by clinging to groups that they claim they like or are cool. Why not just be ourselves? Is it because people are that boring, that they feel the need to continuously reject their own uniqueness in order to belong? Are humans really pathetic enough that they can't have a social life without this? Seriously. Think about it. Think of the people around you, that you know. Think about yourself. Do you have your own meanings, your own set of things that you stand for, or are your morals and standards merely a carbon-copy of a thousand other people's that belong in the same clique as you? It's a crime if the answer is yes, because you know what? It changes you. And I've seen it happen several times over. You change who you are subtly until you're something you're not, and then you don't even realize it because you can't see it through other people's eyes. It's one thing to share the same ideal as someone else does, to stand on common grounds, it's another thing to conform to eachother or a group throwing away your real personality in order to be completely part of that clique. People that do this, to be blunt sicken me. And you probably do, too.

      I've always just ben myself and not cared what people thought of me, and I never really thought much of the percieved cliques I ran into. Hell, the clique definitions were rather fuzzy at my school. People usualy appeared to be a mix of 3 or 4 types. We really just divided into groups of friends. Heh...

      *shakes head* These kids are in more denial than an alcoholic "I can quit anytime"

      Heh, of course, everyone here is too satisfied with themselves (or is it full of themselves) to take in any of this. Closed due to thread failure.

      BTW, I wasn't very clear. I was talking about all the sub-groups people cling to, like Emo, Goth, Hardcore, Straightedge, etc.
