F**K Conformity

This was interesting on Instagram. It is talking about conformity.

People try to place you in some kind of box so that they can understand you. Why do you think the question, "What do you do?" is so common? It is so the other person can put you in that box and because they have done that they think that they know you a lot better.

Why should you conform to their standards though? Why should you say:

"I'm a lawyer."

"I'm a doctor."

"I'm a garbologist."

When someone asks you that question, tell them what you DO. They might not understand it but you are being true to yourself and you are answering their question. They probably won't understand the answer but that is their problem for asking an inaccurate question.

There is only one you, so live your life how you want to not how society says you should at your age or your position in that society.
