Everyones Doing It

It seems to be the only answer I get to a number of fads. People do things for no good reason. The only thing most can come up with is, ‘everyone’s doing it.’ That’s real smart aint it!

I’m going to go out and get a tatoo because everyone’s doing it.

I’m going to wear my pants below my butt because everyone’s doing it.

I’m going to walk around holding my crotch because all the guys are doing it.

I’m going to tunnel through as many places as I can on my skin so I can have another hole to put ornaments because everyone’s doing it.

Sexting, drugging, partying, and becoming an artist in put downs because everyone’s doing it.

Then you hear the chants, ‘I’m my own person.’  Truth is to be your own person is to go against the flow of a particular generation.  Few people do it because it’s not easy to go against the flow.

Because people can’t see the inside of you, all they can go by is the outside of you. Is your character going against the flow? Are you displaying a character that says ‘everyone’s doing it?’

Food for thought: Influence is more powerful than authority.
