What is something you would change about people in the world

i know that i wouldn’t have control around people’s opinion towards one another, but racism has been really hectic around the world for the past few weeks. people don’t understand the word ‘equality’. and it’s wth everything else also, gender, sexuality, religion etc. what i would like to change about people is their negative thoughts towards other people because it won’t get them anywhere. rather say nothing instead of something bad
What is your view on society today?

in general, society is… destructive. 
society basically tells us how we should look and how we must run our lives right? society made us attached to the screens of our mobile phones and we should rely on it 24/7. 
now it may seem like i’m going off topic, but that is sort of how most relationships, friendships or any connection with some people die, it’s because of the lack of communication between the two when they see each other physically.

my view on society is that it can change how you look at yourself and the people around you instantly because you aren’t supposed to look or live like that, you can’t see this, touch this etc. society ruins our hopes and it teaches to doubt ourselves which make us fear the real world.
What is a positive message you would give others?

aweh you’re too sweet x
i know that this is said to almost everyone, but just be yourself. don’t care what others think because it’s their opinion. you don’t listen to what they say, you listen to yourself. never doubt yourself or be negative about yourself about something someone else said. 

don’t give people the reaction they want from you. some people in life won’t always like you, but there will be others that will, and you must stay with those others and not try to please the people

that don’t appreciate you. just be yourself and rock with it x
What is something you’ve struggled with?

i’ve struggled with mild depression way back last year with a lot of drama and people telling me i’m not good enough for them. i ended up doubting myself and saying i couldn’t handle it and nobody will like me. i still struggle with it, i have social anxiety when it comes towards meeting new people face to face and i can be really awkward sometimes. 

i was raised to not really socialize with a lot of people. i was raised to be academic and have my head stuck in a book everyday. i’ve struggled with mild depression way back last year with a lot of drama and people telling me i’m not good enough for them. i ended up doubting myself and saying i couldn’t handle it and nobody will like me. i still struggle with it, i have social anxiety when it comes towards meeting new people face to face and i can be really awkward sometimes. but i can tell that i’m slowly breaking out of my shell and i’m glad that i found people who can appreciate me for who i am.
Last question do you feel like us as people can make a difference in the world and why?

thank you x
i feel of us as the people who want to make this change that we want and if we can believe in it, we can do it. because nothing is impossible. we as individuals can dream and believe and maybe one day it’ll happen. we can work together or alone. but if we want to make that change and if we believe in it strong enough, it will happen one day. you’ll only need time, and patience
