  • Your Happiness is all in your head
  • Materialism is nothing but a mere perspective
  • Recent viral video on Instagram

The madness for a brand, to be everyone's favorite, gaining satisfaction from wealth, these all are key factors in promoting Materialism in the world. One has been so hitched for being famous that they have lost their own perspective. Materialism is nothing but a mere perspective which we possess.

 

Your happiness is all in your head. If you decide to be happy then there is nothing stopping you. But in this brutal world, we tend to define our happiness on the terms of others. We are so busy in attracting the love of others that we have forgotten, the first being whom we should learn to love is ourselves.  Everyone has a different taste. One might love to go to a pub or in loud places and dance it out to take delight and others might be fond of some quiet and peaceful surroundings. But one thing coordinated between both of them is the boastful display of its enjoyment. Our life is circumscribing to social media that we don't want to miss on anything. One might love the sunset but not without showing it on our handle to various people, and between all of it, we lose our moment. Not every single one needs to be shared.

 

There is already much place for negativity on social media and we only add up to it. Just in order to fit in with everybody else, we start envying others. We envy the stuff which they have that we overlook the possessions we hold.

 

Recently there was a viral video on Instagram where this glamorous model got hold of what beauty is and advised people on how not to get jealous, and not think of themselves for any less than others. She told how people feel substandard in beauty and they struggle to get photos of themselves which are exquisite. But she showed them the real truth. The truth behind flawless and alluring pictures of such people. She made us familiar with how a bunch of people does their utmost to make such pictures looks, the prescribed way. Sometimes even a single picture requires effort for the whole day. That is the battle people go for. Things are this much inclined towards materialism.

 

We have been following this trend so much that we have abandoned our own sense of thought. One might not be in favor of what is going on yet won't quit following it. It is also this materialistic world that has taught us to accept the way we are. But is it the way to live appropriately? Accepting the way, you are and giving yourself no chance to improve is not what is expected of humans but from animals. Even now the animal knows how to improve. Thus, accepting our flaws might be good but accepting what is wrong with us, and then doing nothing is unethical.
