My Kind Of Persona
I tend to start over most the time, or at least try to, hoping that maybe, just maybe, I'll get the opportunity to reinvent myself. Of course this doesn't work out quite how I'd like it to. We don't get a do-over to recreate ourselves, nor do we have the ability to portray the millions of personas imagined. I want to be a coffee shop loving, Jesus freak, novelist, broadway singer, fashion stylist, creative photographer, and live a model life much like Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner. Do you see my problem?
(Although I do in fact have the coffee shop loving persona down.)
I'm constantly changing the things I invest my days into, and most of the time I'm okay with that. I take it as a time to really find my purpose. But honestly, I don't know what it is that I'm trying to accomplish or create. I'm just creating things as I get the interest and motivation to do them.
Maybe it's just me, but hear this thought out: I think we as millennials feel like that by doing things we want to do, and posting things we want to post, we're bettering ourselves and society in some kind of odd way. We get a sort of sensation from each like and favorite knowing that someone out there likes what we have to say, post, or capture. Most days we're adding the same pictures and words to feel part of the social norm, hoping that maybe someday by chance, something about us will stick out further than the rest.
