Says 290 – If it doesn’t feel right –

To follow or not to follow

It’s easy to say, but it’s also one of the most difficult things to do, as it goes against all your imprints and programs of wanting to fit in, to be accepted and loved and not be shunned, scorned and attacked for being different. Religion, politics, and customs and traditions are key elements that we feel forced to adhere to as best we can to minimize conflict.

We long for a community, for others that think, feel, and do as we do, where there is commonality. BUT in that, is also the death creating unseen role of denial as it locks you in to following the crowd, and not being the individual, the you that would deviate from the “normal,” as you fear to stand out and be noticed and shunned and rejected.
