Being an American means to be in an undecided state of mind. I mean it’s always been stated that living in America is a dream since we have so many “privileges” and while most of that may be true it sometimes really doesn’t feel like it. It’s not as rough as other countries which makes everything look for granted. Being American means to take pride in yourself and what you do but this task is hard to do when you don’t know what you want to do or even know yourself. It’s wanting to take pride in an abyss, something that’s either there or always manifesting into something else. The “American Life” is trying to look for support. We spend our time looking for something to do, something that can grant us happiness and a feeling of comfort. The way in which form support comes to us could matter less whether it’s a person, the government, a job, healthcare and so on we spend our time looking for this and all the while trying to be proud of who we are as people and the states in which we are in. This support we look for in ourselves and other outlets are like basic needs for our personalities and our emotion of pride which we try and never stop trying to feed. It’s hard because it feels like we can’t control who we are and the possibilities of what we could be which is undecided until it actually happens.
