For a long time, human beings survived by sticking together in small tribes. You had to fit in because you simply had no where else to go.
That feeling continues today.
Don’t be weird, it might get posted on social media. Don’t speak out, you might get fired. Follow the instructions. Blend in.
Different isn’t wrong. Different is different.
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” – Henry David Thoreau
