The world is full of pain and suffering; there are problems globally that are much bigger than mine, i know that. But i am still awake staring out into the stars, thoughts flying by like aeroplanes. The thing keeping me awake is metaphorical boxes.
Life is full of boxes, and no matter how many times we are told to think outside of them, the rules of society are still made by them. Everything fits in these boxes; what we learn at school, how we are perceived but most importantly how good we are.
These boxes are floored, everyone is different. We proved this with the human genome project and the nature vs. nurture debate; so why aren’t we recycling these boxes and encouraging social fluidity.
Don’t get me wrong, we as humans are making small changes but if anything the boxes now have holes where the largest number of different people can flee and find a new home, but its still a box.
These boxes are keeping me up at night, causing me stress and making me feel claustrophobic on a planet that is so large. Flee the boxes, remove the stereotypes and the labels and be you; dream big and achieve your ambitions no matter who says no or its not a good idea.
