Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul.~ Virginia Woolf ~
from her essay, "Montaigne"
Let me just say, no conformists reside here. We are a household of individuals and free spirits.
On this, I must agree with Virginia. Not that there is anything wrong with conforming if, indeed, the act matches one's own personal state. But, conforming for the sake of being like everyone else? Never. Works. Not when it comes to one's well-being.
I am not truly far off the beaten path. Yet, wearing a uniform has never worked for me. Oh, one summer, I wore the uniform of a Dairy Queen employee. That's about it.
How about you? Conform? Or not?
