Conformity is fitting into a neat, socially prescribed box.
Tick the box to let others know which box you fit into... Gender, sexuality, disability, political affiliation, employment status, relationship status...
Many resent being assigned a box and yet, struggle to break free from it.
Because, you know what, living inside a box can feel pretty damn good because it's safe.
But it's also restrictive.
However, do you know what else a box offers?
A great vantage point for looking over the sides and seeing what else is out there.
You can have the safety of your box, while also gathering information about the world beyond, see what you like, and reject what you don't until you're ready to create your own weird-shaped container.
What's the story you’re telling yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
Remember though, with whatever you read online, take what you like and leave the rest because it's your life and, therefore, your choice of how to live it.
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - make kind choices and stay flawsome! Don’t forget, you’re fucking brilliant!
