I’ve never supported conformity in theory but I always find myself becoming a victim of it. I guess I’m just not radical enough to go entirely against the norm. I recognise the importance to have some kind of conformity so that we can have order in our society. We can’t possibly have everyone failing everything or becoming barbarians right… But i think we need a little less conformity than what we have today.
Its never easy to be the one that sticks out from the crowd. Sometimes its easier to colour between the lines and make sure you don’t get noticed. I’ve witnessed people who tried to be different but end up getting condemned by our society.
But then I’m scrolling through model blogs and I realise that they all look alike. Even some artistes and performers look alike. Almost like they are one anothers’ dopplegangers.
I’m looking at all the models and I don’t remember their faces anymore. I used to remember most of them but as the market gets more saturated, only the ones who look different stand out. The ones with crooked teeth and chapped lips - not exactly the idea of beautiful in the model world. Soon, the rest will blend with the crowd. They’ll just form the background of those who stand out.
Its not just the models but everyone else… Its been a glaring problem since forever.
So, I think we need a little less conformity than what we have today. It doesn’t have to be some kind of crazy rebellion against society but in our own little way, we have to ask ourselves if thats what we really want? Do you spend your whole life colouring between the lines and living someone elses life? Or do you want to live yours?
What represents you? What do you want to be remembered by? Remember: When you do something that is for you, it means so much more.
