“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”~Mark Twain~
It is ok to be different. Don’t waste your time trying to fit in, because you are special just the way you are. Does the clay pot decide its shape and size? No it’s the potter, so we should just accept the person that we are, not to be persuaded by peer-pressure, customs or trends. Mind over matter! Everyone has a conscious, so be wise to follow your instincts.
Not because everyone is doing it means that it is okay for you do it too. Stop, take a moment to reflect and critically analyze the ordeal. It only takes the power of one to make a difference. Sometimes we need to be empowered by our own ambitions to make a difference. Once we are content with who we are and our potentiality we don’t have to try to please anyone. So be bold and strong, and don’t side with the majority because everyone is doing it, but stand for principles.
