Something I wrote about solitude.

Solitude - absolute solitude from society.  Solitude from people, the people of this technology centered century that we live in. Solitude from ignorance, the ignorance of the people that are only able to accomplish simple tasks with the assistance of Google. Solitude from judgmental and hypocritical people, people that need to look at themselves before they criticize others. Solitude from all civilization. Freedom. Freedom is what I long for.

The simple thought of being free from civilization, free from ignorance and hypocrisy, the thought of being alone and having no one around to upset me makes my skin tingle; it gives me hope that one day I won’t have to deal with the ignorance of this society. I don’t even know where to begin to try and explain how I feel about the society we live in. Everyone is so judgmental, so quick to make assumptions about each other. No one gives anyone a chance anymore. Why do people judge others based on their appearance? What happened to getting to know people for who they truly are?  What happened? Technology happened. No one feels the need to talk to people who they feel are less than them, or people not in their group of friends. Hell, people can’t even talk to the people they ARE friends with anymore. No one talks face to face, everyone texts what they want to say, and half the time it’s things they would only imagine saying to the persons face. Technology is a way to brutally bash on the ones around you; a way to make yourself feel higher than others. Technology makes it so easy for us to say such hurtful things to people, and it just really shouldn’t be that way.  Does it really make people feel accomplished to say mean things to people via text message? Because it shouldn’t. If you have something to say to someone, if you want to discuss something, at least have the decency to say it to their face instead of hiding behind a phone screen.  I guess I never will understand why people say things via text message that they wouldn’t say to your face; it’s so fake and so low.

Technology is turning this world into chaos. I know I cannot be the only one that sees how much drama technology causes. If someone sees something on a social network they automatically assume it is about them, again people jumping to conclusions and making ridiculous assumptions. Instead of asking who it was about they will get all uptight and start thinking of things to say back, when really they don’t know if it was even about them.

Everything is about things; everything is about money and possessions. No one cares about anything other than having nice things and the best technology. Many people believe that if they just get good grades and get into a good college, they can get a good job and make a lot of money, and then they will be successful and happy, but life’s not just about making money. Having a bunch of money shouldn’t be your main priority in life. Money only makes you happy for the moment. Sometimes we just need to stop and take a minute to look at what’s right in front of us. We get so focused on the finish line of life that we miss out on what’s going on in the here and now. If people just took a minute to enjoy the simple beauty of this world we would have a lot more happy people around. This world is just absolutely stunning, and no one realizes it anymore. The trees, the leaves, the mountains, the sunset, the ocean, the waves, the birds, all of that; simple beauty, and the best part is you don’t need money to enjoy those things. Nature makes me so happy, a happiness that cannot be explained. It is something one must simply experience for themselves to truly understand the happiness it brings.
