The World Is A Crazy Place
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The world today moves very fast, don’t stop or it will pass you by or run right over you. You hear on the news about people being killed for one reason or another, people getting taken for everything they have because they believe what ever they were told is true.

There seems to be less and less honest people in the world. I am not sure about other countries but the U.S. puts more value on what you have then who you are. We glorify people who have talent yes but are they for the right reasons. Everyone wants to be noticed, everyone wants to be a star. Well everyone can’t be a star and most of us are never noticed past our own home, church, or place of work.

Is fortune and fame all it’s cracked up to be, they make it seem so glamorous. How would you really feel if you could not even leave your house to go to the corner store? Yes to me it seems that bad! Oh yeah at first it might feel great, wow look at me I am a star. But after a while it has to become a constant strain on you. And the people we see as stars prove it to us time and again.

The pressure of having millions of people looking up to you, and you having to uphold an image. You can’t really be yourself anymore. I can give you loads of examples but I’m sure you can think of them on your own. You lose yourself in a world that was not you, and some manage to survive and remain who they are while others get caught up in the supposed lifestyle.

Well who determines that lifestyle, at some point don’t you think you should have a say in how you live. Well to me I think yes but I guess if someone is paying you that kind of money you may be expected to just shut up and go with the flow. We are all bombarded with the pressure to keep up with a certain lifestyle. Some people are not as affected by this as others.

We all at some point want to have this new thing or that new thing. But the question really is do we need it? Ok I will give you an example- a GPS; yes this is a wonderful device, if the user inputs the information in properly. But what is so wrong with using a map, to me nothing it all about convenience. Which is great don’t get me wrong. My point is that we are convinced we need things that maybe the old way was not so bad. But like it or not technology is here to stay and is a great thing for all of us to use just not abuse it. Technology today has advanced so it’s kind of scary. Where were all these products years ago? Did we really become advanced so quickly? I don’t know about you but why can’t they just make it right the first time. You but one product and the new and improved one comes out the next day.

Someone I know recently bought a new laptop and the operating system is the newest and most advanced and they told me it is already saying there are updated to install for it. Well I realize the system has been out for sometime but it just surprised me that she has only had it a week and it already is updating itself. Not a bad thing and I’m not that computer savvy, just thought it was strange.

The world will not stop changing in any way. We as human beings will decide if we are going to keep up, if we want fame, fortune, and convenience or are you happy just to keep things simple and do things the old fashion way. The decision is yours! Which do you prefer?
