A Summation of Sorts

In conjunction with my last post (somewhat), I’ve lately been thinking about isolation and its impact on the human psyche.  Often times, those who are kept from human contact are looked down upon; feelings of pity inevitably ensue.  However, if the “real world” is often thought of as being too stressful for most, shouldn’t people who are unable to be influenced be seen as ideal?  True understanding will only come when outsiders are finally seen as fellow human beings instead of exhibits to be studied and exploited.  More information about the inspiration behind this latest post can be found here.

“Follow your dreams”

What else is new on this rock? What could initially appear to be young women who are simply “out of it” surprisingly unravels itself to be something else. This movie puts a thought-provoking argument to the test: Do some simply lack the desire to conform, or is this a matter of lacking ability? Such discussions have been generalized many times over, thus, inciting a snowball effect that eventually begets a less-than-stellar outcome. Individuality cannot be discussed on a universal platform and magically become completely understood by the majority. Such realizations, I feel, are all a part of why loneliness can (inadvertently and ironically) be the one thing that unites us all.
