There is a big message in this post. One has to be as oneself and not copy blindly what others are doing. Unfortunately, many people are simply copying the ways of celebrities, sports stars, and important people and in doing so are entering in a blind arena which makes them totally meek and dependent and they lose originality in their manners and styles. Copying others means that we do not know how to live in this world. If everyone is wearing a torn out and unpolished shoe because of fashion I need not to copy that. If everyone is wearing a torn jeans I need not to follow. I am not so weak, not so gullible, and not so humble that I will fall for the ways of any Tom, Dick, or Henry. We must preserve our identity and stick to our convictions. I do not mind adhering to my own good manners and styles in my life even if others do not follow me.
Knowledge is power.
