It takes courage . . .

It takes courage to grow up to be who you truly are.
– E.E. Cummings

Individualism is highly emphasized in our society. However, if we stop and think about it, we will realize that society has expectations of how individuals behave. In order to be an individual we must dress, talk, and behave a certain way. We must also possess the latest technology – the newest I-phone, the latest Kindle, etc. By allowing our actions to be dictated by societal standards of individualism, we no longer are individuals. This is commonly seen in pre-teens and young adults who strive so much to be seen as individuals that they end up becoming a what we refer to as the “stereotypical teenager”. They are no longer individuals, but a “groupie”. E.E. Cumming’s quote is appropriate in today’s world. It takes courage to break away from the mold society is trying to put us in, especially if you are a teenager/young adult.
