    If you aren't being an individual you are not being true to yourself, and you are losing out on who you really are. What you want think and feel. You are cheating yourself of the complete life experience. Have you ever had a pet? None of them are exactly the same. That is what makes them interesting and delightful. It is also what seems to make them happy. Just going along being who and what they are.

    Becuase we re born to be unique and special in our own ways.

    It is useless to be followers and do what othe r'popular' people are doing just because everyone else is.

    What makes a person an individual is their own unique ability to process information in their own ways. :) Remember this.

    Being is an individual experience that no two people share exactly the same way. That diversity should be embraced rather than shot down.

    Everyone has valuable assets to contribute. Things would be unbalanced if everyone was the same. Who would write? Who would speak? Who would think behind the scenes? Who would build? You need a knife for steak and a spoon for soup. Gifts are dispersed a little in everyone.

    It not important. We are individual whether we want to or not. It just is.
