This is where I live.
Whenever I need to face the “real” world, I get very shocked and wonder how much wronger it all can go?
I don’t want, what other people want, I don’t want what society wants.
I don’t have a Tv.
I don’t buy at supermarkets.
I don’t eat that manipulative publicity.
I still wear clother I made myself at age 15.
I think my body is perfect, yet this has nothing to do with anything.
I plant tomatoes. I also kill my plants quite often….
I do my best to generate less waste, yet I do buy chocolate, separately packeged.
I care about my health, yet I am not a fanatic.
In the middle of a big city, I live a completely different life to the others.
And I think you should as well.
I’m not talking about manic pixie whatsoever crazychick style, because that is also a pose.
Either instamaniac vegan cook or crossfit wannabe style.
We need authentic people, we need no wannabes.
We need consciousness. Care and attention payed to something other than yourself.
Generate less waste, pick up the garbad and take it to the bin, leave the nature clean.
The point is that we all live in our private little worlds, but we do not need to necessarily ignorant selfish bastards. There is a fine line between (like the Grand canyon) being commercially manipulated and consious living.
We need to be more critical, ask why a whole lotta more often and accept not the unacceptable…
Just a block from my house there is a huge billboard advertising breast augmentation, with a model in underwear. NOBODY, but nobody questions that!? Yet, when you ask to not to be given an extra plastic bag with your food (intended to be bought at the counter) you are questioned with a sigh and bad manners.
