Pensive: Rule Your Life

by Sarah Mahmood

How many times have you been 'victims' of 'unwillingly' joining a bandwagon, be it a rock metal band, a new political frenzy or simply a smoking trend? I'm pretty sure many wouldn't even have realized their own unwillingness for fear of becoming a pariah.

Peer pressure and weak ideals both work towards shaping your personality into something that it is not: a charade of what's acceptable. And what does this eventually lead to? The individual YOU, losing your uniqueness! What you are born with -- your tastes, your desires, your abilities and your talents -- get lost somewhere in the process. You live to satisfy others -- your decisions and actions within the safe boundaries of their acceptability.

Live to satisfy your conscience, set up your principles, and learn to rule your life!
