“I think the reward for conformity is that everyone likes you except yourself.”
— Rita Mae Brown
I realize that in some circles, it is expected of us to conform. I am OK with that. However, in our personal lives, we should strive to be genuine and authentic. Too many times, we feel pressured to conform to others. Submitting to this takes away from whom we really are. Also, once we’ve decided to do so, conformity is fairly easy. What is hard is to be ourselves, among all of the expectations and pressures of others.
Do you conform? Where and when?
