|Receptionist:||Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
|Me:||Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
|Receptionist:||Isn't it the same?
|Me:||No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
Yay so much homework to do and no motivation to do it!
So I saw the first picture on my dash and could not be more repulsed/motivated. Repulsed because the ideologies in the first photo are wrong —you don’t destroy yourself to be happy. You improve yourself. Depriving your body and your soul of nutrients and fuel gets you nowhere.
Then, I was motivated to make the bottom picture. So many people have helped me become who I am today. I too, once used the top photo as “thinspiration”. I then learned that harming yourself is not the answer to anything. If I learned anything from this process, it’s to remain true to myself. Feeding myself and fueling myself with positive thoughts got me as far as I am today. Not negativity or body shaming.
I wish I was as oretty as my little sister
Omg I was talking to my dad and I went “omg I haven’t shaved my legs for 2 weeks” and then his face just dropped like he’d seen a ghost and he gasped then looked at me and whispered “I completely forgot to shave my legs for 41 years”
