as members of societies, it's important to .. i don't like to say 'follow the crowd', but shit, that's what i mean so i'll say it, we should all follow the crowd.. never blindly, of course not, but .. humans are social animals, when we feel socially rejected, it fucks with our heads to a massive extent .. individualism, living on your own terms (while not hurting anybody around you, goes without saying) is a brilliant thing, but too much individualism can and does lead to social rejection.. some people never learned the rules of their society, and constantly find themselves being shunned by this group and that group, and these people become hermits.. now some people can be perfectly happy as hermits, but most of us won't be .. .. actually what i've said up there really only applies to extraverts, didn't point that out to begin with because most people are extraverts, but a good-sized minority aren't, and none of this really applies to us .. but yea.. for the majority of us, it's usually psychologically most healthy to talk and behave the way our neighbours do .. believe what you believe, have the opinions that you have, they're all yours.. also, it's important to note that people usually won't respect someone who has no personality of their own and has had to put together a patchwork personality made of bits and pieces from other people.. nobody can respect that kind of person.. weak minded, easily influenced, complete cypher.. that's not what i mean.. .. but yea.. acting the same way as the people around you is a very healthy thing

I understand what you're saying, but I disagree. For starters, we ALL have patchwork personalities. Every single one of us. We aren't original in what we do. We are taught from birth how to act, what to do, who to be, what people like, what people do not like. Even when you get older and change your thoughts and ideals (although sadly many never question their own foundation), they are still leaning towards the thoughts / ideals / beliefs of another. So, we all have patchwork personalities. Some just take better parts of personalities than others. (This is just my personal opinion of course)

We need to break the idea that we HAVE to be socially acceptable. You DONT. You can still have friends without following the crowd. You can have every ounce of individualism that you want, because when you step outside of your bubble you will realize that there are 7 billion people in this world and not all of them follow that herd mentality. So instead of encouraging people to follow the flock, we should be encouraging people to accept others, even if they do not understand them. Accept them any fucking ways. You will find that when you act like yourself, it makes others feel comfortable to act themselves around you. Which then makes them feel like they can act themselves around others and it keeps spreading. Be the change.

It IS about finding yourself, what you did yesterday creates your future though. You spend all your life, to the very point of death finding your identity. The search never stops. If anybody says theyve found themeselves, thats stupid. What progress could happen from then on?
