Conformity is fitting into a neat, socially prescribed box.
Tick the box to let others know which box you fit into... Gender, politics, 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 safe.
But it's also restrictive.
But since we live in a world so obsessed with putting us in boxes, why fight the box?
Because do you know what else a box offers?
A great vantage point for looking over the sides and see what else is out there.
You can have the safety of your box, while also gather information about the world beyond, see what you like, reject what you don't, until you're ready to create your own weird box.
Your life, your choice.
Until next time, stay safe - and sane - and be kind, to yourself and others.
After all, you're fucking brilliant!
