Historically being a lowlife was perceived to be a bad thing. It signified that you weren’t truly apart of society’s functioning class and were instead a social vagabond living outside of the realms deemed acceptable by the majority. Nowadays, these stigmas are still somewhat attached to the word but luckily our society is changing. With rising economic inequalities, social injustices, and civil rights battles, we now more than ever are finding that we may all have elements of an outcast within us.
There’s nothing wrong with being an outcast, or being perceived as a lowlife just as long as you’re committed to living life your way. Outcasts are free from the weights and pressures that society readily asks you to subscribe to, so why not embrace it?
It’s a high time to be a lowlife because it only goes up from here.
