We’ve all been there, I’m sure… you just clicked with this person, you saw them every day, you were best friends for years and then you went off to college and they went off to another. At first everything is as it always has been, you talk everyday, you meet up all the time… But then they make new friends and you make new friends and sure, it’s nice to have new friends but it’s not the same and you can’t help but feel a pang of jealousy when they post pictures on Facebook with their new friends captioned ”love her, my best friend”. You can’t help but think ”what about all the things we’ve been through and all the years we were best friends”? Eventually you barely talk and you try desperately to keep the conversations going but you have nothing left to talk about because you never see each other anymore. It is worse even when you’re in love with this person and you’re trying hard to detach yourself from them emotionally. So best friends come and go, you think you’ll be best friends forever but when you hit adulthood, you find yourself growing apart and if you’re in love with your best friend, it breaks your heart 💔 I’m aware this came across like the diary of a teenage girl but I’m 19, technically still a teenager so cut me some slack x
If you visit gossip and news sites on the Internet, there will always be an article about somebody like Kim Kardashian or Kylie Jenner. When you scroll to the comments section, inevitably there are a lot of hateful comments. From what I understand of these people’s hatred, they don’t like the fact that these women are confident in themselves because half the time the comments will say something like ”please stop with the selfies” or ”she’s not as good looking as she thinks”. I find it spiteful to post mean comments about people just because they’re confident in themselves and take a lot of pictures. There are far worse things these celebrities could be doing. They could be a bully like the internet trolls but they’re getting hateful comments written about them because they’re confident! Another common complaint that people tend to make is ”I don’t like so-and-so because they are vapid and have no talent”. As far as you know this person could have a hidden talent and if you think this person is vapid, have conversations about things that interest you, not about these ”vapid” celebrities. It is vapid to leave spiteful comments based on the fact that celebrities are confident in themselves. It does not make you more intelligent and it achieves nothing. Why not comment something you like about the person or the picture? That is far more worthy of your time.
I think it’s clear to everyone what I’m going to write about as the title says it all – TV characters are interesting, unique and just a lot more loveable than real people. That isn’t to say that there aren’t interesting and unique people in the real world, they’re just much harder to come by. Of course everyone is different in their own way but I find myself invested in a TV show and think ”why don’t I know anyone like that in real life”? ”Why in my nineteen years of life (technically not very many years) have I never even come close to meeting someone like that”? I look at characters like Luna Lovegood (my favourite character out of anything ever), Violet Harmon (very flawed albeit so amazingly unique) and Audrey Jensen (again, she’s flawed but she’s got something about her) and I sit and think ”this is the type of person I want to make a connection with.. I want to find someone like this”. But I go out in the real world and I find myself feeling like I will never meet someone like these people. It seems like everyone I look at is a cardboard copy of someone else – this could also apply to me, I feel like I just blend in and don’t stand out. All I want in life is to meet somebody that hits me with great impact like these multi-dimensional characters and yes, I’m also aware normal human beings are multi-layered but as I said, I’ve yet to meet someone that hit me with the great impact that these characters have done. I hope one day that I find a friend or girlfriend/wife that I am completely head over heels in love with, with the same amount of love I feel for the fictional characters I put my time into. I could apologise and say I feel silly for feeling like this but I’ve yet to be proven wrong. This also came across like I have no social life or friends which I believe it or not, do 🙂
