Wow. It’s funny how our generation has managed to redefine this word. Goals used to be:
Making it to university.
Finding true love.
Travelling the world.
Pursuing your dream job.
Or maybe making money to take care of your family.
Or just making money to help the needy.
Or just making money.
NOW GOALS ARE, UNFORTUNATELY:
Being the cutest couple in school.
Getting trendy clothes.
Having ‘fleeky’ eyebrows.
Or looking ‘amazingly’ made up. What most people call ‘slaying’.
Have human standards fallen? Especially amongst teenagers. Even my friends. It’s seriously sickening. Now some no longer care about working so hard to make good grades. Instead, they try so hard to get likes on Instagram. They try so hard to ‘Slay’, not for themselves but their followers. They pretend to be happy for a few hundred likes. Those who do not aim for this are not recognised or just looked down upon or just considered invisible.
What are your goals?
