“Go your own way?”

Obviously, humans are social creatures that attempt to fill an empty void that has been felt since those earliest memories. All of us crave acceptance, love, and community. We all conform to those ingrained desires.   

If you were often exposed to a culture that celebrated individualism, then you’ve heard the cliché concept to not focus so much energy on caring what others think about your life choices. This belief does have its merits because we can conform to others’ expectations to the purist form. We will always be criticized at the end. And commentary can turn into ugly judgement and condemnation for whatever the reasons may be.

To “go your own way” is a challenge that is arguably not entirely possible unless there’s some sort of social segregation involved. In a unique move, anyone can grab a surfboard to the woods and build a fortress made out of dandelions. But if you still live in society among other people, then that’s a different story.

In the simplest terms, I believe, is to “go your own way” is to challenge yourself and choose a direction that might not necessarily make you feel comfortable. It might be numerous choices that feel intuitively right, which might sound a bit stupid out loud, but certain choices just feel so right.

If there is that innate desire for change in your life, then go for it if life’s circumstances allow for such radical decisions! Change your social group, move away, or perhaps drive a slightly different route. Of course, if you want that kind of stuff.

At times there may be moments of extreme doubt, negative emotions and all that’s related. Go through life. Keep on going. Don’t be too affected by others’ judgements.
