"When we align ourselves with the opinions of others without examination, we are robbing ourselves of the
opportunity to analyze our own preferences and desires, to determine our own solutions. We miss the chance to review the criteria others are utilizing, to question their biases and seek our own inspiration. In stunting the development of our own individual perspectives and initiatives, we trap
ourselves in lives that appear to be predestined, and deny the possibility of realizing our personal potential."
