Today, class was interesting. We learned that people [we] have been brainwashed and reformatted to a standard. To the point of forgetting ourselves and wanting to be like what they [society] WANT us to be. We’ve also learned that we have been deprived from showing our real emotions so instead put up a fake identity - what we called moeurs in french, or “morals” in english. You have to be this, you have to be that in front of people, and your attitude must depend on the certain social class you face. I guess that’s why we don’t really know the real identity of people, our closest friends, or even ourselves because we are all afraid to show who we really are. We are unconsciously pushed to put up a front to please what the so-called society expects. I also think that’s one of the multiple reasons why there are so many heartaches. Because in the end we show up who we really are and people will judge us for being ourselves, so we discover that therefore, they are not real friends. In my humble opinion, don’t hide your feelings and emotions. Either you’re a guy or a girl, it’s equal. Cry as if you’ve never shed a tear, laugh as if you’ve never laughed before, smile as if you’ve discovered happiness, and open your eyes as if you’ve never seen before. The world will be so much better if we only be ourselves and learn to accept the personalities of each individual, even with flaws. Because in the end, no-one is perfect. And loving the imperfect is what makes it perfect. For instance, we have always been sinners and full of flaws, yet our God loved us so he chose to send his son to die for us so we could live forever. He chose to hate the sin but not the sinner. Beautiful isn’t it? Think about it.
