I used to feel guilty because I felt I should have been stronger, instead of conforming to how others wanted me to be. I felt compelled to write from my own viewpoint why I feel it’s important for us not to conform to other people’s lives if it’s not right for us, and why we should learn to follow our own path.
It stands to reason that if we live by our own rules, we will live a more peaceful life with less stress in it. We will live by our own values and be free to make our own decisions.
When we conform to fit into another person’s life, we live by their rules and not our own. If what others are asking us doesn’t fit into our own plans, we must make our own decisions on what we want to do. When we try to match up to other people, it usually means we’re trying too hard to find a level of acceptance. We shouldn’t have to match up to others, relationships should feel spontaneous and relaxed.
But we must be comfortable around our non-conformity. Not conforming helps us grow emotionally, physically and spiritually because we’re free to do our own thing. Try not to care about what other people think. You’ll stop conforming, and as long as you’re not rejecting other people out of spite, no one should make you feel bad.
When you choose not to conform and you have your own reasons and you’re not hurting anyone, the universe will know that and everything will work out for the greater good. It’s your life to do with as you please, as their life is for them to do as they please. No one should make you feel bad because you choose not to conform.
