Hey folks, its been awhile. Sorry i've missed you and all that sort of thing
anyway, i've been doing a bit of writing lately, mostly on gear and recording
Society today has a lack of humility
But i dont think anyone will listen to that because really you cant change an overwhelming ideology our environment has bloomed by proclaiming something that may or may not be obvious.
its like saying "no! hunny! it wasn't me" yah sure
But take a pause during your day whether you're working in a busy mall, a crowded street or a helpless help centre- take a pause and look around, around at everyone trying to break way, and make way for their own well being. The idea that someone takes a step back to let another through the door is gone; With the wind,
Of course the biggest argument would be, as greenday would so popularly say "Nice guys finish last." however something that gets overlooked and lost when we don't learn modesty and respect is our mental well being.
And this isn't something that's been slowly occurring over the last 40 years. In fact, even in my little blip of existence, i can see the high strung narcissism that has been infused as "proper behavior" so heavily into our era of people. And I'm 24.
A person's happiness is directly affected with this behavior as well. If we have a mindset of "success for me, sucks for you" a strict lifestyle of beating out the other man has to be put in order. How do we know that happiness though is affected by our lack of humility?
Lets take a look at the prescription rates of anti-depressants as an example. I'm going to quote some stuff here that'll open your mind.
"In the United Kingdom, the use of antidepressants increased by 234% in the 10 years"
In the US, over 33,000,000 prescriptions of Zoloft were prescribed in 2010, compared to 3m just 15 years before.
So okay, cool, throw me on some meds and i can keep living an intense life, no big deal right? I guess, if you're comfortable going through life with a dependance on a drug (and all its brilliant side effects) rather than a lifestyle change. However you can't change the inherent inevitability of being able to sleep with yourself at night.
Again, im a horrible argumentalist, however i write these words out of slight desperation and observation of where us, people are headed. Our worlds important, and i think you should stop to take a look at it, and ask if it's okay, before concerning yourself if you should run this yellow.
