Sometimes we have to go against the crowd, the current, the common. It’s paramount for our principles, for our sanity, for our future, for our growth. It might be easier to follow the flow and copy what everyone else is doing, but it’s not the most satisfying or worthwhile. We should be out experimenting, discovering, learning, challenging, creating, living. Stand by what you believe in and stick to who you are. Otherwise, you might not recognise yourself in the reflection.
