    Not A Leader, Not A Follower

    I've never been one to lead. I won't follow anyone else, I won't do what others like to do simply because it is what everyone else is doing... I used to when I was a child, I used to agree with everything and try to conform and fit to other people's standards...and it just sucks...

    They're Going The Wrong Way

    I remember a few times when I'd second-guessed myself because I was the only one who answered a certain way or did certain things, thinking I was right. It's easy to think that the majority is right. That would seem to make more sense. I'll be fair here. I remember an instance...

    Weird really. Never followed trends

    or pop stars the way most youngsters do. Didn't get into the gadget loving 80's. Nor the dance oriented 90's. By the time the 2000's rolled up, I was 35. What do you get into at 35? Personally. I wonder if it's best to SET trends rather than follow them! This. Next year I'll be...

    "One Of These Nights"

    It seems that many people do not take the time to realize what is going on around them during their lives. Life gets so busy that there is such a hustle bustle, and many don't just take a moment to regroup, think, and find something good with each day. We get the impression from...

    I Am Me.

    I have never followed the crowd. And I never will. Not my style. I tell it like it is. Always have. That will never change. People say, "Why don't you kiss as ses?" I shake my head emphatically and say, " I don't do that!" And I mean it. Some say I buck authority. Like a bronco...

    Crowds Bores Me

    Why would I follow what other people are doing if it doesn't make me happy? I never understood why I have to. Other people have tried to push into these things but I don't feel happy doing it so following the '"crowd" is not my thing. I like my puffy hair and being goofy, I don't...

    Only Me

    Just trying to be different like everyone else as they say. Well maybe so, but to be honest I just dress in the clothes I like, not what society says I should be wearing. The latest dresses that look like bin bags just because it's fashion, no thank you! I now have very (very...

    A Born Leader

    I'm just going to keep this simple..I was born a Leo and we are just born leaders not followers...All my friends and family have always looked up to me to make the right decisions in every matter that ever came up...I don't look at it as a curse but a gift......

    Internal Direction

    for me, not following the crowd is much less about making a statement "hey look at me, i'm different", and much more about looking inside at who i am. i go in My direction, and don't concern myself with the rest. if the rest of the world looked at themselves instead of The Jones...

    Why?

    Why try to fit in with a crowd? Seriously, I know I'm cynical, but why? For the most part the cliques today are just people showing off some disgusting atrocity they've done to their body, or some ridiculous piece of crappy that they purchased with money they do not have. I for...

    Crowd What Crowd?

    Do you see a crowd I don't who would want to.  Friends are great need a whole bunch of people around not my thing.  I like a quiet corner with a good chat with some meaning in it.  Have a cup of coffee or tea even a glass of beer once in a while.

    I learnt that it is SO, so important to just "take the plunge," take risks (healthy risks),and follow whatever your heart desires. Otherwise, guaranteed you'll regret it later on.
