I was thinking about what really shaped me into who I am today and how I handle certain issues that arise in my life then it hit me. A long time ago, my Dad said to me, “…I’m not a conformist and I don’t break the law either, that’s exactly how I raised you…“. That got me thinking for a long time cause I thought it didn’t make sense but I realised it made a lot of sense. I grew up being really principled and having a great sense of direction. Not saying I haven’t made any mistakes or taken any wrong turns but I’ve found myself in the end, I always get out of the maze. I think that’s simply because I’m my own person. These days, a lot of people aren’t. Individualism is a trait that’s rare now, most people are a product of the unnecessary quest to climb the “social ladder” .
