Well, teenagers are perfectly happy until they open their Instagram and see this:
After seeing cute couple photos on the internet, they want to have a boyfriend/girlfriend too, but if you look at all the pictures above, literally EVERYONE in EVERY picture is attractive, which leads teenagers to believe that they have to be drop-dead gorgeous to get into a relationship and get girls/guys to love them.
That’s when teenagers start to become self-obsessed and insecure about the way they look and they get depressed at the idea of being alone forever, not realising that they have their entire lives ahead of them to chase their dreams, accomplish their goals, and maybe one day, run into someone that will love them for THEM and will not judge them by a fake standard of beauty found on the internet.
Not only that, but I’ve noticed that students at school actually ENFORCE the stereotypes because they’re so quick to judge:
“She ain’t even thick”
“He’s not even tall.”
Yep, I’ve heard it all.
When people stop imposing these stereotypes, I’m certain that this perfect-Instagram-relationship-trend will die because nobody will be following them and so, people will have no choice but see past the looks, into the soul.
I know you know this, but I’ll say it again: Looks aren’t everything.
If you’re a stressed teen and think that you’re HELLA ugly, I promise, it’s just you analysing your skin through a microscope.
And besides, why stress when you can be busy becoming a millionaire?
Don’t stress, stay happy (:
