Name: Destiny Savage
Social Media Handle/Username: _destinysavage_
Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello! My names Destiny i’m 17 and I grew up in Vermont. It’s not a very popular state that people know about but i like the stillness and calmness that comes with it sometimes. I really enjoy art I love to draw n paint n i’m learning how to digitally paint n use different programs. I have a big love for reading as well some of my favorite books are merciless, allegedly, and sharp objects. I like books that keep me on my toes and have a lot going on to keep me glued in. I also love traveling and nature the world can be so beautiful and i hope to explore it out of the US.
What Inspires You Every day? : definitely Myself and my friends. I inspire myself by making new improvements on the way i live my life and perceive the world everyday. I know my younger self would be so proud and inspired by the person I have become today. On the other hand my friends are also a huge inspiration they’re always showing me new things and different ways to improve myself and they’re such genuine people that i have so much love and respect for.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Words of wisdom i live by is where whatever you want and just express yourself however you want. At the end of the day you are your best friend, you’re the one with yourself 24 hours a day. Don’t think about if other people aren’t going to like you because no matter what you do in this world no matter how many people you try to please there is always going to be people that dislike you so instead of trying to be what you think people want just be you. you’ll probably find you’re much happier being yourself, and you’ll be able to find friends that support and love you because of it.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal in life at the moment is to graduate high school and save up as much money as possible so I can beging traveling the world. Even if it just starts in the US and i have a little cute van and i’m driving around. Or I would like to settle down somewhere in another state or region warm with my significant other and our cats near the beach just loving life and at bliss. sounds peaceful.
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : My thoughts on people who seek attention on social media aren’t necessarily bad but they aren’t good. It is always so obvious when someone is seeking attention on social media and it’s hard to ignore it. I guess it depends what kind of attention someone’s trying to gain. If you’re being super down on ur story trying to get empathy it’s probably not going to work because to be honest most people don’t care. You could easily talk to one of your friends about it but when you’re posting about it it’s clear you want attention. My message i would give them is try focusing more on yourself and stop trying to get the attention and validation from others. sometimes as humans with emotions we crave attention and validation which is okay but it’s when you start doing it for petty attention when it’s a problem. Take time to yourself and learn how important you should be to yourself n how much love you have for yourself and you’ll soon realize you don’t need to seek the attention. because in reality what are you getting from the attention anyways. validation maybe but does that really make you feel better?
How would you help people around the world who are going through mental health problems? : Mental health is something that performs differently for everyone. But we all share some of the same experiences when it comes to mental health. So I think what i would say is that you can be happy with mental illness. you can be productive. you can have fun. you can be confident. you can have friends. you can go hangout with people. you can eat. you can do ur work. you can do anything as long as you have the self discipline and you really want it. I know sometimes it may seem really hard to do well anything but i promise things get better. i know everyone says that but it’s true. but you still have to work on yourself everyday even if it’s tiny steps. you can’t expect yourself to get better if ur not doing anything to improve things. It may be hard at times but it’s definitely worth it.
How would you describe a better world for us all? : Oh my where do i even begin. First let’s talk about how we’re destroying the climate and the animals and earth because we’ve decided to create a society with huge building and fast cars and power plants that emit green house gases. we have soso so much to do with climate change like between 1990 and now is when it’s been getting really bad. and that’s not a long period of time. We only have a few years til all of this is irreversible.
Okay two society. some places are definitely different than others but i’m going to talk about what i personally know from the US. The education system is horrible we aren’t being taught important valuable things and in our history classes were only taught abt white men going to war and than we talk abt slavery for like a week. but it doesn’t go more in depth about african american history. only white men. also dress codes in schools are so the boys don’t get distracted but maybe teach your boys not to sexuality young girls and make it a distraction
okay three and i’ll make this the last bc it’s getting long but honestly a world without humans would be much better off. we’ve ruined just about everything to be honest. we’re killing the earth we’re killing the animals and we’re slowly killing ourselves. and now we’re all so distant from what reality actually is because of all this recent advanced technology. People are getting so brainwashed and sucked into social media they begin to think it’s real. the likes the comments the posts. they’re all fake they don’t actually exist they’re just things that are in this little box you carry around that you decided to put meaning into.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: Umm i’m not really sure there’s too much more I could share to be honest. I have 6 cats lol they’re all so cute. i’ve been learning how to tattoo with my machine my sister gave me so that’s pretty cool i would like to get good at it.
