Hello lovelies,
We live in a world dominated by technology. Selfies, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, hashtags, Snapchat and more that I don’t even know of because I’m out of touch and suck at tech end of things ha ha!
However, I do know that these days teens can’t go anywhere without the imminent threat of a selfie, tagging or latest trending hashtag. In my opinion, all of this creates unnecessary pressure that was non-existent when I was growing up. This desperate need to fit in, be the same as everyone else and most importantly be photo ready at a seconds notice. This also makes it hard to be an individual, explore your own tastes and discover who you truly are. There is a constant barrage of media telling you how you should dress, do your hair and even what music you should like. Teenagers can’t try out different looks for fear of being immortalised on Facebook and social media, ultimately seen by the world.
When I was younger, (I sound like I’m 80 years old) you had rock chicks, Goths, sporty girls, girly girls, so much diversity in one place. Now it seems all you see are clones, teens all wearing variations of the same outfit, even the same makeup and makeup styles. It’s so important for your mental health to have a strong sense of who you are and not what society dictates you ought to be. We need to remind our children of this and encourage them to do as much self discovery as possible. Discover you, before you discover the world.
So I leave you with a very famous Dr. Seuss quote that I hope you will whispers in your children’s ears everyday and write it all over their hearts….
