“Such-and-such did this. You should do it too!”
That this may be a good thing for me to do. Might be the best idea yet. But that reason is the absolute worst reason for anyone to do anything.
I’m not the following type. I’m one who’d rather do something different than what everyone else is doing just out of sheer perversity. I hate following. I don’t like being just another in the crowd.
Some people are followers, though. Nothing wrong with being who you are. Not everyone embraces the chance to stand out. Many people are more comfortable doing what everyone else is doing simply because there’s a blueprint to follow, it’s accepted as “normal” and there’s no ruffling of feathers.
To each his own.
