I wateched a movie from a while called Monalize Smile , it was starting by Julia Robers, regardless of the movie itself idea, but i liked a statement that was mentioned by one of the girls when she was making a debate with her mother in the movie,
the mother was trying to convince the girl to keep up her marriage although it was turning miserable and she wasnt happy , for the sake that her image would be fine
the girl replied (by what it means), commenting on her image in the society by comparing her self with monaliza picture, saying that monalize looks smiling , she looks happy , but is she really happy ?
this statement i liked for so many reasons, for me i alaways face situations that we should do things (i am not talking about right and wrong ) , just to satisfy the social image , what about us , are we happy by that ? do we really want it ? and what about if what we really need and want is weired for the society surrounding us, because we arent fullfilling the social image.
so many aspects are like that , for example, if you went and you prepared your home, it should of a certian style that people see it is fame from their point of view, if you choose something to do or someone you want to be with, you have to think whether this will be acceptable in the society ,m does the image looks fine or not ?
maybe not all the people are like but there are so many aspects when i think about them ,i find that big part of my decision is built on the social image and how it will be seen . is it acceptable? does it look fine ? does it look nice ? what about me ? shouldnt it have the first priority .
i am not saying that we should go and do wrong behaviors or to put ourself under suspection from people and society , no , i am talking about the social image , without being suspected in your behaviour,.
