Nonconformity in a
Nowadays and perhaps before, there seems to be a
constant pressure to conform, fit in and take the normal
route. If some people don’t fall
into a set of expectations, society
tries to change them or medicate
them or shun them.
Perhaps we need to rethink
this. Everyone is unique with a
distinctive, sometimes uncommon,
sometimes peculiar bundle of gifts.
Attempting to reconstruct individuals
into a type of group-think, could adversely change
them depriving the world what ultimately they would
have had to offer. Do you think Van Gogh would fit in?
How about Mozart, Steve Jobs, Frank Loyd Wright or
Gandhi? Probably not.
We all have stuff everyone can see and we all have
stuff no one sees. Who can judge what each of us is
here for in order to live an all purposeful life – especially
if we can’t ever see the entire picture. Why not
tolerate and accept each other. Leave the changes for
someone else maybe for the individual him/herself.
Let’s rejoice in the differences around us and in one
another. This is how good people can do great things.
Life is a celebration of advancement to higher levels of
being. Join the party without judgement.
