What Tumblr has become
Being a young designer I try to see the beauty in everything and take from all aspects of life in order to create something beautiful.
Today I was scrolling through tumblr and I wasn’t shocked but sadden to see what this innovative social network has become…Teenagers releasing their insecurities through ‘GIFS’ and recurring photos of self harming, money, drugs and anorexia.
The generation of today has I feel such an open amount of access to everything,whether that be music videos, Movies, video clips, posters that our ‘Innocence’ and youth quickly disappears and we’re just left with young adults lost in the world they know they’re not ready for…and each year a ‘teenager’ begins younger and younger, when you can walk into a middle school and see 10 years olds with ‘Iphones’ does childhood still really exist?
To all the young girls going through tumblr self conscious about your bodies or your appearance to other, yes you are beautiful because unlike any make-up you can buy in a store or how many dinners you miss to become ‘perfect’ in your eyes, The most beautiful thing about you is that only one of you was created in this world and thats limited edition enough, trying to fit in and become something everyone wants gets boring and generic…I’m not saying try to be indie and alternative and go against the grain but appreciate your flaws as something thats beautiful and unique to you
thats the end of my public service,if you’re reading this please remember you’re beautiful and unique<3
