Take a Detour

Posted by Dr. Patrice Smith

At some point in our lives I'm sure we have all felt the need to belong, the need for approval from others, the need to be part of the cool crowd. I've felt this way before but learned early on that it is necessary to step away from the crowd, to not be easily influenced by others and to not fall prey to peer pressure. This was not an easy thing for me to accomplish while growing up. However, as a got older, became more mature and had a greater understanding and awareness of self I realized that I didn't need anyone's approval or praise. I realized that sometimes it can be more rewarding taking the less commonly traveled route.

Dare to be different

    Yeah, why not be true to our own and not live in other's life.
