“You weren’t made to replicate, obey, or stand in the shadow of another person. You were made to stand in your own power and find the truth in your Soul.” Lonerwolf

Why is it so difficult for people to be their true selves? How many people in your life REALLY know who you are? The society that you live in has more influence on the way that you behave and the life decisions that you make. Societies develop their own cultural norms for their members so there are no misunderstandings on how to behave. These members will conform to the rules and their behaviors become predicted. Being humans, we need regulated rules to follow in society so that we know our consequences to our actions. Children learn quickly there are consequences to behaviors that are not socially appropriate. People who go against the rules are looked at as defiant individuals.

We want to “follow the rules” and be accepted in our societies. Who does not care if they are liked and accepted? Many of these people decided to “hide themselves” and will not come “out of the closet”. Different groups form in societies that share different beliefs, and interests of the social norms. These groups can become powerful and can change the way that societies view different ideologies.
