15 Jarring Cartoons That Nail The Absurdity Of Everyone’s Life.
For the most part, it's important to stay positive about your life and the world around you. After all, there's never going to be a time when all pain, suffering, and negativity is gone from the world, and dwelling on such things doesn't help one enjoy their day-to-day lives. In general, it's better to think of things from a sunny perspective -- but every once in awhile, it's okay to get critical.
These illustrations depict the darker, more insidious parts of our society and day-to-day lives, from what it's like to be a single mom, to being envious of what others have, to never-ending struggle of trying to stay on top of social media. Some of these illustrations are incredibly difficult to look at, but they can call to mind some important ideas that all of us should occasionally consider. See the shocking images -- and the messages that come along with them -- below.
#1. You know how some people say that your television brainwashes you?
Well, in some ways, it can be kind of true. Think about it: How different would your mentality be if you never had the influence of television -- not to mention how much time you could have saved.
#2. Women are often held to unrealistic -- and totally identical -- beauty standards.
Sometimes, it can feel like intentionally breaking the mold means making the conscious decision to set yourself apart from society.
#3. Then there's the matter of technology and relationships.
We like to think that it can't be THIS bad -- but then again, this image feels uncomfortably close to the truth.
#4. Then there's the heavy topic of suicide as it relates to our planet.
This illustration shows how close the tie is between not protecting the environment and choosing to commit suicide: In a way, failing our planet is a surefire way to killing ourselves off.
#5. This says quite a bit, too.
After all, like the old saying goes: You always want what you don't have. That's why we should never compare our situations to others.
