To find yourself, think for yourself.

Think for yourself, or others will think for you without thinking of you.
Henry David Thoreau
We are all individuals and have our own thoughts, no two people think the same way. What a boring world it would be if we all thought and did the same things everyday.
We say that great minds think alike but the truth is, We need many good different ideas as possible so we can pick the best ones. People have different backgrounds , upbringing, where they lived, went to school and see things in a way we can’t.
It’s not good to let anyone do your thinking. We must think for ourselves and stand up for what we believe in. If we don’t others will do our thinking for us and we’ll find ourselves following their lead instead of going our own way. So walk the walk, not just talk the talk. If you really believe in something, then don’t just argue about it, do something about it.
We have to stand up for what we believe in even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves , authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart.
As difficult as it seems, sometimes we will even stand alone and others will go their own way, but no matter it’s better to stand by yourself than to go with the wrong crowd. It’s the only way to figure out where you need to go and who you need to be.
It take nothing to join the crowd and every thing to stand alone. There are many ways to blend in, but only one reason to stand out, and that is to be yourself.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it i time to pause and reflect.
