“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”
-Margaret Mead
Everyone strives to be different. They identify as not the norm, or alternative to the norm. That’s cool, but just because you reject society, or pop music, or trends, does not make you special. In fact, there are thousands of other people thinking and doing the exact same thing. Industries in fashion, music, and everything else are geared toward people like you to make your identity attainable. Why do you think alternative music has become so mainstream? So many people sought out an alternative to mainstream music that enough people listened to that kind of music that it became mainstream. Ironic. The sooner people stop trying to just be special and unique and instead look to identify with people who feel the same way, the sooner we can stop hating other people because they aren’t as different as we are. Stop thinking “me” and start thinking “we.”
