Conforming Is Less Free


We are subconsciously wired to compare ourselves to those around us, even to the point of being unfair to the very uniqueness of our individuality. We are all unique in our own way, and having others pressure us to live up to society's expectations will only make us less free. I met someone recently and he thought me to not be afraid of being true to myself, that who I am should actually be celebrated and not be compared to anyone else. With his guidance, I now wonder, why are we so obsess to conform to the norm when we can be so much more by just being ourselves.
