Communicating what I'm feeling in an accurate way is one of my biggest insecurities as a human being but I'm going to try my best to speak on some feelings I've had lately. Not relating with others in the creative community around me would be quite the understatement. Often I make fun of Instagram culture but I think it's become an unchallengeable faith. I've had many conversations with friends where they negatively speak on somebody on this platform but would act immediately on the chance to hangout with them. At the end of the day it becomes a campaign for us to inauthentically benefit off one another. One example: I remember looking at a post and attached was a heartbreaking caption about a lost pet. Most of the comments said "how adorable" or "I really love this" and it made me wonder how many people really care at all. I'm doubtful if I am any different or better than anybody else on here but I'm exhausted of consuming calculated moments told by those who don't know any better. I'd rather try to find peace in solitude than to blindly follow what will please the masses. These opinions may not be the most popular with everybody but they don't need to be. That's the beautiful part of discussion and debate.
