The Emo Life Style

Many have heard the term "emo", but for those not knowing the term it might be a bit confusing. The reason it might be a bit difficult to understand is that it's both a fashion style, and a music style. It can also be regarded as combining the two styles to become a lifestyle. However; there are some aspects of the emo lifestyle that is less appealing, and I want everyone to stay away from, even if other emo's do it: self damage. Cutting you with knives or doing other harm to yourself has no base in reality and is as stupid as it can get. So please stay away from these actions. You will only harm yourself and those who love you by such foolish actions.

Let's have a short glimpse at the music style first. Emo is based on the word "emotional music". This is most likely why we think of emo's as emotional, sensitive and depressive (thought; depression is just a stupid part of the emo style; which most likely causes self damage). If you ask me, being emotional and sensitive is far enough, being depressive and sad all the time doesn't do anyone any good. There is a large difference between being emotional/sensitive and being depressive, why so many choose the depressive path is a mystery for me. Back to the music style; the music style is a combination of hard punk and the indie rock movement. The emo music style started in the early 1990's but didn't become popular till early 2000.

Most of us recognize emo's from the fashion style. There is no real style defined within emo's as its encouraged that the clothing and hairstyle is to be made unique for each individual, and express their emotional site. Due to depression playing a large role in the emo style it has advanced to emo's often being dressed in black. This is of course being a combination of depression and being a "teenager" style. Most emo's we see today are dressed in black tight jeans and a black t-shirt. They also have their hair dyed black, with some lighter stripes of colour in their hair.

I hope this answered the question of how to be emo and let you understand some of the style. I personally think the style needs to forget this dark, depressive side, and instead focus on colours giving deeper emotions. There is no rules stating an emotional person have to be dressed in black and depressive. Being emotional means you know all your feelings; anger, happiness, sadness, love and so on. Depression is just a small fraction of all the emotions we live.
