Don't be a hollow

There such an obsession nowadays with being on the same boat as everyone else. It's so very rare to see anyone step-up as an individual who is proud to be different. I get that people don't want to be marginalized or talked about, not everyone can take the heat of being in solitude if they dare to change. However, is life about being a sheep? What makes me even more mad is these inglorious bastards called politicians telling us to be unique through their words of patriotism to set apart their people from anyone else yet they hate people who break social order. They fear freedom of personality, because even though they till you don't be a follower this whole society is built on being a follower. The social and political hierarchy is a hidden system of mindless obeying. The Prime minister obeys stronger politicians, the MP's obey the Prime Minster, premier obey the MP's, the mayor obeys the premier and the police obey the mayor. Than comes us the working class, the typical citizens following laws set by people who have decided what is right and wrong and we listen to bosses just because they have the biggest office. The whole point of the last few sentences isn't to incite riots and hate towards authority, but to keep in mind that we are constantly being told to follow. So no wonder girls in high schools feel insecure about rejecting that jerk just because all her friends are dating jerks. That man who just witnessed his wife die in front of him can't avenge her death because the law told him that it's wrong and considered murder. We listen to doctors just because they wear white coats and studied, we are mindless people. Throughout our day we obey without thinking. Be different, if your gonna obey people and laws and authorities all your life than where is living in all of that? Or maybe your just one of those people who just wants to exist, get through high school, finish university, work, get a family, raise a daughter and die. Forget the exploring and wonder, forget showing off those hidden talents and who cares about leaving your name behind. Unfortunately, that's the biography of many in today's society I like to call these people hollows. Because they are like masked characters who are brainless, who obey and go through life doing the same stuff everyday. If you wanna be that person forget about anything I said, apparently being the same is enough for you, but it takes the ability to be different to be something great. Not saying being great is being known worldwide, being great is when you can change a persons life and put your few years of life to use by serving others (not as working for a boss). My challenge for everyone out there is be different for 2 weeks, be yourself, that person you want to be not the person you idolize or follow. If you get marginalized than you just gained something 'cause now you know that the people you're calling friends are not really anything of the sort. Try it if it isn't for you go out through your life and I hope your best looking sheep at the least.

Good quotes:

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."
