You're not alone I think alot of people's feelings and opinions reflect what you've expressed in your video. In a society thats becoming totally revolved around consumerism and commercialism we can't be allowed to feel any satisfaction with our lives unless it revolves around buying the latest gadget/outfit/car ect. Sometimes I wonder if I'd just be happier living in a field then consider how bored I'd get, a campfire every night would be a treat though (:}) I suppose you have to just meet a happy medium where you learn to filter out the BS. I'm still confused about my life although many of the things I really want have become clearer to me, I hope the same goes for you, good luck (:})

Spot on James - it's true - of course, woman possibly face even more intense pressure to "be a certain way"
