Why You Deserve to Be Happy: Stop Living Your Life Based on Other’s Expectations!

March 3, 2016

Conformity is part of social programming. A little goes a long way.


I once posted a question on Facebook: how old is too old for a guy to wear his hat backwards?  And a dear friend of mine reminded me to wear your hat however you like and stop worrying about what other people think.

It is a simple reality that often times we get caught up in the herd mentality and rely on other’s opinions to shape and mold us.  From a young age we are taught to run with the pack and avoid standing out or being different; lest other kids make fun.  It takes courage to break away and stop living your life based on other’s expectations!  If you pay attention to advertising you will notice the purpose is to convince you that what you have, who you are, how you look is not good enough.  As if your identity is connected with your possessions or lack thereof.

Love this post! It’s exactly what we need to do. Do not worry about what other people think. However some might qualify that and say ” my mom (or dad or boss or spouse ) says…”. It’s not about them. It’s about you.

I’ve been on bost sides, and being true to yourself is more liberating than following the pack, especially when it comes to promoting peace. Thanks for posting
