individuate, individuate, individuate!!!!!

Remember You’re an individual first & foremost

The following laundry list will kill the individual in you if you’re not careful

Group thinking

Accepting societal norms without questioning

Blind faith in Religion/Nationalism/Political Ideology

Not realizing you are in a Social Media bubble

Staying in confines of familial boundaries

Does it mean we should never be part of anything larger than our individual self? No, we should be part of some larger group, if we were to effect some social change. But that should start with us realizing our individuality before becoming part of a group. Even when in group, one should never stop questioning its actions/beliefs. It’s easy to get lost in the crowd. One must be really cautious not to let that happen.

To end on a funny note , Woody Allen says in a movie quoting Groucho Marx (or Freud), “I never would want to belong to any club that would have someone like me for a member”.
