From ChangeThis: “When we align ourselves with the opin­ions of others without exam­i­na­tion, we are robbing ourselves of the oppor­tu­nity to analyze our own pref­er­ences and desires, to deter­mine our own solu­tions. We miss the chance to review the criteria others are utilizing, to ques­tion their biases and seek our own inspi­ra­tion. In stunting the devel­op­ment of our own indi­vidual perspec­tives and initia­tives, we trap ourselves in lives that appear to be predes­tined, and deny the possi­bility of real­izing our personal poten­tial.” · Go to Self, and Impor­tance.
