Why Seek Attention When You Could Seek Literally Anything Else

image

To an extent, I think most normal people want attention. Even people like me, who get uncomfortable with attention, have some strange, inexplicable yearn to be recognized and acknowledged. But most people also share a universal disdain for “attention whores,” or people that are obsessed with constantly being in the spotlight. Why is this?

The other day, I was scrolling through Dan Bilzerian’s insta. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a glance. You know those people who post things on social media that are barely snap chat story appropriate? He’s one of those. Bilzerian’s Instagram is basically photo after photo of him trying to make it extremely clear that his life is better than yours, from the scantily clad, fake bosomed “models” (read: strippers and porn stars) he’s constantly surrounded by to his yachts and helicopters. But there’s nothing subtle about it. I’m all for arrogance, but believe it or not, you can be full of yourself without being tacky.

I hate false modesty. Don’t downplay yourself or your accomplishments because they make insecure people uncomfortable, by any means. But I can’t stand people that always feel the need to prove something, and abuse social media as they attempt to do so. Whether they’re trying to prove how hot they are, how good of a time they’re having, or how much money they have. If you got it, flaunt it, but there’s a difference between flaunting and desperation.

Bilzerian posts multiple times a day. I’m an intense Instagram creeper, and ended up on the pages of some of his concubines. I didn’t know who was more pathetic anymore: Bilzererian or his bimbos. I get it, it’s LA: no one has morals, but literally every single one of these women’s Instagrams looked like ads straight off of pornhub. I get the occasional suggestive upload, but seriously, you could get fired from your job for looking at one of their instas on a work computer.

I don’t care what Jezebel or any other delusional feminist says; there’s nothing empowering about being half to nine tenths naked in every photo you put on the internet. Theres nothing empowering about treating yourself like a billboard, making your sole objective in life to be noticed. There’s nothing empowering about living for likes.

While a part of all of us itches for attention, we find fault in those who can’t live without it because they abandon all integrity and dignity as they chase it. They don’t care if you respect them or if they can look themselves in the mirror as long as you’re looking at them. Long story short: thirst for attention is only cute in puppies and fat babies that aren’t crying.

  • Say what you will about my president but if his majesty starts posting thirst traps the kardashians are over 😫🍑🎂💯👀
  • “Wow it sucks that your job only took you to Punta Cana for a weekend”

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
