All Appearance And No Substance

“Hastiness and superficiality are the psychic diseases of the twentieth century.”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn


Looking for a personality in aisle 6? You can fake your way to the top, but watch out when your false sense of self hits the rocks. Because you know how it works – everything that goes up must come down eventually. Enjoy the high while it lasts shawty! Hooked on anything that screams status and money, living in today’s world equates being constantly subjected to the fucked up appeal of superficiality.

Supersonic speed on the highway of notoriety, we pride ourselves that hustling hard is imperative if we want to rank high on the ladder of prestige. Working hard is our trademark, never mind that everybody else uses the same one as ours. No but really, who are you outside of your achievements? We treat life as a quest to achieve what we love to call self-made success. On the inside, we’re insecure as hell, meanwhile making a living out of promoting the illusion that our life is going all too well.

Big talk is our enemy, because the only language we speak is the one of superficiality. Narcissism is our mistress, we fuck her behind closed doors while stupidly thinking that no one will one day find out that she’s turned us into this entitled human of a mess.
