We live life in the pursuit of getting attention from outside of ourselves, whether it be from our peers, our family or our friends. With the same exactitude we measure ourselves the way a tailor measures his clients so that we can confirm and adhere to the ideology we believe can transport us to the upper echelon of society. Our entrance into this world and our departure there from is the same. Our life is ours to live as we decree it, as long as we do not endanger the life, freedom and livelihood of others. We are special and we don’t need the validation of anyone in order to believe in ourselves. Time is too short to play the game of conformity.
