Turn the lights out

Let wither away what doesn’t serve you well. Titles hold no value when the love that is meant to bond you is absent. An abundance of excuses, bouncing around the cage of my brain, I’ve heard enough and I close the door.

The prevalence of social media in this world has severely impacted interpersonal relationships. As I sit back, withdrawn from that world, I see it. Everyday. All smiles and glory when the camera is rolling, compliments and fawning when eyes are turned on. But when the lights go out, what is left? Who is that person breathing in the darkness? What are their true desires, ambitions and needs? Why does everything have to be broadcasted on the internet, a global facade that richness is greatness. That continuous attempts at perfection are what emits true happiness. Why are young girls shaming themselves and wholeheartedly believing that they are not enough? Why is that our reality? Turn the lights out. Unplug the chord. Look into your soul and search for what defines you.

It’s not what you see in the mirror. It’s the driving force from within.

Turn the lights out. See yourself. Be free.
