Individuality and Conformity

Some things that make me different from my friends and family is my height, passion for baseball, and my hobbies. My height makes me so different because I am taller than most of my friends. I am already taller than my sister and she is 17 years old and I am only 13 years old. Another thing is my passion for baseball. This doesn’t make me different from my family, but it does make me different from my friends. The reason why is because they are bigger basketball fans than baseball fans. My hobbies make me any individual because I like practicing baseball and my friends don’t know that. I do see them practicing basketball but no baseball, so in a way my friends are the same when it comes to practicing sports. Now you can see myindividuality, between my friends and me.
Colorful Froot Loops
Dr. Seuss once said, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” He meant to be yourself and whoever doesn’t like that, doesn’t deserve to be your friend. Those that do matter won’t care what you’re like. If you be yourself, you will find out who really should be in your life and who shouldn’t.
If everyone looked and acted the same, the world would be a boring place. It would be like living in a box of Cheerios. You wouldn’t be able to tell people apart from each other and no one would be himself or herself. What you really should be is a colorful Froot Loop in that box of Cheerios. You should be yourself instead of conforming to everyone else.


Individuality Question: Is it good or bad to be different?

My Answer: I think it doesn’t matter if you are different than other people because it makes you unique and shows everybody who YOU are. You might feel bad and embarrassed about who you are and what you like to do but at least you aren’t pretending to be someone your NOT! It’s like a whole bunch of serious people in a picture and then there’s you, smiling, the biggest smile you ever made and not caring about what people think.
