There seems to be this fear throughout the world at the time, a fear based on everything happening in the world. It is like a large portion of the world’s population is scared for the world to end…or at least that a lot is turning bad. Whether it is about inequality, LGBT rights or even politics in general.
What scares me the most is that no one really seems to care about the one thing that could lead our species into extinction; the environment. With the climate change that is occurring, there may not be any of us left to fight for further rights. Earth has always made it, has always been able to recover but it’s the species living on the planet that need various conditions to expand their race.
Aren’t you scared? The rising sea waters may lead us into moving further into land and we are already overpopulated. Where are we going to go? Yes, there have been various fluctuations in the temperature of the planet but it has not been like this before.
The rising temperatures can naturally be reversed if we let it, meaning that we have to keep the temperature at where it is and not worsen the conditions. What may not be so clear is that we can all aid in this fight. Even though it may seem pointless for you as an individual to change a habit it could help so much more than you think. If you make an example other people are bound to follow.
It is us that control the politics and the politicians within. They feed off our needs and need our voices to succeed. Together we could establish laws, putting forth taxes and such that in turn forces us as the population to control our consumption of various different things.
We have to continue to educate each other on the consequences of the change for it is only together that we can make a real change. Even if it would only be The US that would start acting on the environment as Sweden has the world would be getting into a better place.
We can do it together, we can make the world a better place.

Am I ruining my life? A question that keeps lingering in our minds throughout our lives, each time for a different reason. It is almost as if you start to question your whole existence and what you may or may not be doing wrong to reach your dream life. It is exactly this question that gets us to start questioning our goals and ambitions in life, whatever they may be. We start doubting the road we picked to get to our goals, causing us to confuse ourselves and moves us backward.
No matter what you are thinking right now, you are not ruining your life. I can safely say that. I have been their many times. It’s like you look upon your life and ask yourself if you are doing enough or if you are doing too little. Life is playing a game but you have to be strong and determined in the road that you picked.
Whenever you feel doubt settling in, take a deep breath and remember where you come from. Remember why you picked your path in the first place and remember that if that path no long suite you, you can always change. But if the path you picked leads you to exactly where you want to be you have to pause and take a minute to yourself and just breathe. You can make it. Don’t doubt what you are doing because you fear that you’re doing something wrong. You never stop learning new things. Every moment life is trying to say something to you. Follow the whisper. You are stronger than you think and you are capable of anything, whether it feels like it or not.
Being insecure in general is something that we go through as adolescence. It’s almost as if it is meant to happen constantly. The fact is that the teen years are when you are meant to find yourself and bloom into the person we are to become. We learn to be confident in who we are, our personality and the traits that go along with it. Trying to find yourself is something that makes you extremely fragile, no matter how confident you are as a person. This since you have not gone through the experiences you have to have gone through to end up being the person you are to be for the rest of your life.
If you are a person who has an overpowering trait or something that you are known for you will understand what I’m trying to say. Although you are fully aware of what you do and how you act sometimes it just gets to you. Even though it might just be lightly made fun of it still ends up being the subject of thought that keeps you up at night.
Questions like “Why am I like this?” and “Can’t I just be like everyone else?”. They are questions that should not affect you but they still somehow do.
I guess what I am trying to say is that is okay to have something you are insecure about. We all have things we are insecure about but don’t talk about. Heck, it happens to me every day. Know you are not alone and you will learn to accept yourself with time. But for now, don’t beat yourself up about it too much. You are probably just overthinking.
Something that I think we have all thought at one point or another is if the amount of selfies we have on camera roll accounts for our ego. Does it matter and does it make you an egoist if you take selfies?
Honestly, no one thing defines our personality or the person we end up being in the long run. Our egos tend to be a subject that is very individual and sensitive. Just because you have pictures of yourself it does not mean that you are an egoist. At least not in a bad way.
You see, I have thought about this countless times, coming to a different conclusion each time. The biggest theory I came up with was that Selfies were mostly taken by the people who felt insecure in how they look and how others view them. This since they would look at the pictures, reminding themselves of how nice they look instead of being sure about their beauty, not needing pictures to remind them.
Now that I really think about it I don’t think that selfies are for insecure people at the same time as I do think that they are kept and taken to remind you of your beauty. There is this human need within us to be someone that people like looking at, even though we might not admit it. It is not as bad as it might seem. Vise versa, it is a good thing, especially in this day-in-age when we are surrounded with media, feeding us expectations all the time.
No, you are not an egoist. You are a beautiful being that deserves to be reminded of your beauty!
What do you guys think?
Throughout life, we are constantly faced with things that scare us. Whether that is a minor phobia or something that has scared you for the rest of your life. Some fears are fears that will always exist in your life and that is something you learn to live with but some fears are some that you learn how to master.
What you have to understand is the quicker you get back at doing whatever might have hurt you at first, the faster you will learn to master it. You can not let the fear control you, you have to learn to control it.
Many times we become paralyzed by a bad experience. Instead of taking control we lose it because we feel like we aren’t capable of fixing the problem.
The world is out of our hands and that is a fact. You will never be in full control of your life but that should not stop you from doing what you want to because of it going haywire once. Like the riders say, if you fall off a horse get back on it again. the faster you conquer your fear the faster you will master it and you will be able to live the life that you always wanted.
