Society has a created a mindset where some things are more fashionable than others. Certain people are more attractive than others, yet it’s always been that way. Often times individuals are put down by specific traits they see on someone who appears more better than themselves. Many grow insecure. Comparing oneself to another promotes self-conscious, which can hurt the individual's self esteem. When these negative thoughts start to form it is when many individuals have to stop, and begin to be acceptive of themselves. But this is difficult. Individuals are bombarded from a young age on what is “preferable” and “acceptable” in society. If you aren’t either then you don’t belong. When individuals aren’t accepted, the need to be accepted kicks in. Why? In an article written by Cassil about fitting in it states that “There are only Two motivations for people’s action: One: To get love Two: To compensate for the lack of love” (Cassil). When people do not perfectly mirror society's perspective of what is acceptable they become the odd one out. Many cave into peer pressure to ‘fit in’ and be accepted. Humans mistake this acceptance as love. When individuals are not favorable in society’s means, they begin to hate themselves. That lack of love individuals feel, the desire to fit in to be accepted, can be stronger than morals. The fear of isolation can cause many to do and say things they know are not right. The solution to this? Don’t judge, don’t make others feel less than what they are, and don’t stick to the status quo, be kind to those around you and try to understand what individuals may be going through. Love and be accepting of all as many try to figure out who they are.
