be different


A post about being different and questioning mainstream behaviour.

I might need to explain why I chose exactly this name. First of all, I didn´t want to be stuck to only one topic (e.g. the-travel-blogger). But this is not the main reason.

Let me give you an example. If one person drives his car against a wall (we assume he did it on purpose), we would all agree that this was not really smart. But what would happen if one billion people drove their cars against walls? Would´t that be the same stupid thing? Yes.

If we apply this (unrealistic) example to our daily lifes we might realise that certain things “everybody” does are not the best or smartest things we could do.

Don´t get me wrong, I am not an anti conformist, I just want you to think about it. Whether it´s spending money on popular brands or the fancy coffee to go, there are many examples. Maybe we shouldn´t follow every trend and have the courage to stand up against certain issues (e.g. consumerism) for ourselves and the environment.

What do you think about this?

  5. I agree. But, I believe that most people conform because they want to be accepted and to fit in, and they fear the social costs of being non-conforming.
