Fragmented Realities

Most of us are living diluted realities of the truth. We over sell and over consume most of the times as a means of convincing others or ourselves of our value and worth. Some individuals live fragments of what others consider reality – the world becoming strongly narcissistic thus shifted the collective thinking – people  became so focused on themselves yet they are unaware of the bubble they place themselves in.

Sure becoming more self-conscious is great.. people are making a stand for their worth for fairness and equality. Most of us live fragmented illusions of what we call life.

Although it appears we have more friends than ever according to our Facebook profiles that couldn’t be any further from the truth. Human connection has been lost and the demand for attention is more prevalent than ever.

The products we use have a strong influence with the way the world perceives us. Moderate spending is fine the problem arises when we spend in order to gain approval. People acquire debt in order to finance fancy cars, pay for trips or to satisfy spending addictions. Many unconsciously put themselves into difficult financial crisis and bankrupt even when the crisis could have been avoided entirely.

In my eyes the view towards the need to thrive or the so-called “American Dream” is more a superficial image filled with material desires rather finding balance and true happiness – it’s based off the ego. In reality the “American Dream” should be finding personal happiness in our daily lives without the need to showboat or compete.

As individuals we should shift our focus and attention away from material possessions and wake to each day with expectations to have every instance filled with hope, excitement and adventure.

Wake with hope to grow mentally and physically. Wake with the means to support yourself financially. Most importantly wake to love yourself, don’t worry so much about material possessions.

Most people refuse to turn the TV off when they get home from work, binge watching complete seasons over a single night is becoming more and more common.

  2. […] People experience crisis in their lives because they can’t accept the truth of reality. Reality is hard. Reality is tough. More often then not these people have been disillusioned for a greater portion of their lives and are in tough hole to get out of.
