I don’t know what’s real anymore. I’m tired of living in a world with misunderstanding, judgment, lies, hatred I’m tired of living in a world with no respect no limits no guarantee. I have reached a point where I’ve convinced myself that I’d rather be none existent than having to live this way. Despite the wars and the diseases the poverty and the struggle of the early years which have all led to where we are now, we still find a way to make it worst. I witness today a young man who clearly gives a whole lot of importance to money arguing with another just a little older about how he had left his headphones and charger at his place and somehow never got it back. In conclusion he ended up accusing the older guy of stealing his charger. With this happening everybody took the older guy’s side which ended up by the other one being alone. Things were said that I honestly thought to be unnecessary such as ‘’she’s a ****’’ or ‘’you’re father’s a drug dealer’’ or ‘’I don’t need your fake money’’. All this because of a charger and an accusation which wasn’t thought through.  The story might sound pretty banal to many but it lead me to realize certain things I had before but never took it seriously. He came towards me and my partner and sat down and with anger started basically yelling and saying stuff like ‘’now I see who my real friends are’’ or ‘’they’re all snakes (which means people who talk behind your back)’’ or ‘’they are all fake’’. And with this brought me to a conclusion. How many of us truly know nowadays these who really care for us enough to never have to put us through these kind of situations. We are all stuck on our phones enough not to even be able to read somebodies expressions, listen to a tone of voice not even knowing how to communicate. Stuck with social media (although it also has positive sides) also gives us a fake reality. We see a fight instead of pulling two people apart we pull out a phone and film without even noticing that the reason why they are even fighting is because of society making up that for somebody to man up they need to know how to fight for somebody to confront, they need to put a fist up somebodies face. We are so full of ourselves it’s rare to even find someone able to process two points of view at the same time without having to make the other feel like garbage for not understand theirs. We watch so many things that we have the wrong idea of love, sex, affection. We have the wrong idea of what being ‘’a man’’ or a ‘’lady’’ is. I see thousands of men thinking that being one means to have a bunch of women at the same time surrounding them. I see thousands of girls thinking that being ‘’sexy’’ means to get exposed to show cleavage to wear things that almost look like they could jump in the shower without even getting rid of them. Think a men mean’s to disrespect the women you are with, to lie to her, to get close to others behind her back because that’s what makes him ‘’popular’’ to ‘’do what he wants’’ because that is the only way to be ‘’free’’. Whereas it’s the whole opposite. We live in a world where if a millionaire posts on Instagram a bunch of chicks showing their ass with money put in between their cheeks than that is what it means to be a ‘’boss’’. Having millions to gain what you want to buy people to buy love. We live in a world where a man has to work his ass off to gain or else will never find a women to love him for HIM. My question is does a man need to be rich for you to love him? Do you have to make a women feel like another piece of trophy because you can ‘’afford’’ her? I think the biggest mistake is to believe all these small things that actually give importance in this world don’t count. For the ladies out there you don’t need to look like what people make up angels to look like. Because an angel is what one has in the heart not what one gives the impression to be. For men out there you do not need to be filthy rich to get yourself a loving person. The one who loves you for you will not hesitate. It is in so many ways messed up that this is how people see life. It is in so many ways messed up that we treat the one next to us with such disrespect. Last but not least it is messed up that this is all we have in our hearts. Rich because of paper poor in the heart.
