In time you will realize that the “cool” people don’t actually exist. There is no cool group until you designate them as “the cool ones”. You have been trained to think they exist with almost every movie you grew up with but it is BS.
People who grow up without watching TV often don’t have this concept of the “cool kids” who are better than them or have more fun. They are then often perceived as “cool” in a different way because everyone’s sees they don’t give a rat’s ass what anyone thinks. They have confidence because they didn’t absorb the propaganda that they wouldn’t fit in and that being different was bad. All the crap you choose to watch, it fills your head with so many messages that choke your spirit. If you don’t get a lot of confidence from your parents, the whole thing often spirals into crippling insecurity. The system likes it like that because it makes you BUY stuff. That’s the secret to the raging success of Capitalism today. Your suffering and brokenness is very profitable. That is why the “youth market” is the biggest target of advertising. Because they are naturally the most vulnerable to the messages of marketing. Everybody should be so pissed off.
Think about it. There is freedom in being your true self. Try and find the people who get you, and who you get, and then who cares about everybody else? Create your own world with your special people. Open your eyes and stop buying into the lies. Buck the system. Be a true rebel. If you do, you will have great moments of laughter and content, you will feel safer, you will have more confidence. And baby, that’s just cool.
