As a millennial or an ‘echo boomer’, it is difficult to believe in love. Seemingly, but I could be wrong, everyone is out for themselves—also meaning like-minded individuals—and their agenda. Lately, more than ever, it’s a practice of mine; I have good reasons. Neglecting myself of deep emotional commitment and companionship is necessary—to me. Why? People who aren’t like me, or people who cannot understand me, will get in the way of what I enjoy doing for work and pleasure. If any ‘baby boomers’ read this, they might feel infinite sorrow for me, but they shouldn’t. As odd and sad as it may seem, I am contempt with what I’ve been able to create, manage, and start to earn.
According to research by Strauss and Howe, the Narcissistic Personality Inventory scores have elevated. As we age, we start to feel more entitled. I can’t see how that is a problem if you’re someone like me. I work, work, and work some more to earn. Do I have a grandiose narcissism identity? I’d beg to differ. Do I classify as someone with vulnerable narcissism? I guess it depends on whose looking, reading, judging and scathing. Do I believe in love? Yes, I do. To be frank, as usual, it has to be with someone who is worth the time, distraction, and energy. Some or most of our goals should be common. My generation knows what it wants. We, also, like never before, can see a way of how to make it happen. We are an unprecedented people. We are not perfect by definition, but we’ve found a way to achieve (what I tend to call) quintessential individuality.
Check out the video below for the dark song by Australian recording artist, Michael P Cullen. Outside of the song’s lyrics, I think the actress Morgane Housset depicts the reality of what it’s like to be alone. In the scene when she enters the train from Abbesses station (Paris Métro), it says it all over her face.
It’s her unprejudiced love for people that’s taken her this far. Join Richardine on her journey as she writes history into existence, one article at a time. Richardine is a member of the Recording Academy/GRAMMYs.
