A lot of people don’t want to be alone. They don’t want to be left out and the worst part is, most of them will do anything to jive in the society. Nowadays, being accepted in a group is important.
Most of the time, people experience this “social pressure” where in, they need to follow the standards of society. This includes the standards of beauty, fashion, and opinion. If a person will not jive in, they will be left out. I guess this has been the norm since everything is evolving.
We are not free to be our selves and most people pretend to be someone else. In my opinion, its better to be different than to be a person who does not signify his/her true identity.
Don’t forget who you are. Society should not dictate your opinion or your decisions in life. Remember, being different is better and exciting.
