Some people, in order to ‘fit in’ change their selves completely but at the end of the day, people may like you but you may not like yourself. Remember, what is popular is not always morally upright.

Popularity doesn’t mean anything. Don’t change yourself, if you want to change yourself – only do so if you want to be a more moral person. Following others will get you stranded.

    1. Thank you Jess! It is tough to be your true self when there is ‘social pressures’ around that you get ‘pressured’ to be like the majority. What I am happy about myself is that I didn’t change as much due to others e.g. pressured to go out and drink, wear inappropriate clothing etc. Those were the ‘norms’ in high school and I didn’t conform because it does not reflect my values and morals 🙂

  1. Popularity can change with the wind. The person who thought I should be like others, contacted me last night, and while measured in hr words, reaffirmed that she respected my choices in life. What a difference four days of my staying the course, publicly, has made.
