All of our lives we try to fit into groups. Whether it's a political group, a sports team, a cliche at school or even at work for that matter, we all want to fit in. We all feel the need to share interests with someone. What is it about a collective group that makes us feel so....comfortable?
I think people are scared to be them selves - to be that true individual. Yes, we might share certain interests or beliefs with another, but when you get down to the nitty gritty none of us are exactly alike.
There is something about the whole "grouping" thing that makes it uncomfortable to show your true self. Will you be cast out because you disagree on something or because your personality is just a little different?
Isn't it our individuality that really makes people like us?
You are liked because you are you. A you that no one else can be. Each person has a uniqueness about them that makes them interesting. Why is it that people are so uncomfortable to show their true selves?
