about this story

Many people, mostly young adults, are scared to speak their minds, act like themselves or dare to talk about how they feel about certain subjects. Especially with all the people getting "offended" about basically anything nowadays, almost like they're walking on eggshells. They don't realize that all they're doing is holding themselves back and hindering themselves from being who they are and maybe even achieving something great. They're scared of rejection and what the consequences would be if they weren't accepted by their peers or society. So instead they conform, they act and think like someone they aren't they try to be similar but inside they're different. In my opinion, I think the internet and social media has had a huge impact on this issue since most people want to be the person on their phone screens. They see someone on Instagram or Twitter and try to act and think like them thinking that it would help their image. But instead, they're hurting themselves and killing their personality.
