“Self-Reliance”

Try to imagine different periods of history and the standards of behavior people were expected to follow. Living in Ancient Greece wasn’t anything like living in the Roman Empire. And, living in Elizabethan England is nothing like living in Canada today. Children have always been compelled to “adopt” the everyday practices of the world in which they’ve lived.

Human beings are, for the most part, taught to “fit-in”. Emerson contended that “conformity” undermines the independence and genuine uniqueness of an individual. In other words, ”conformity” produces people who think and act alike. Individuals, by contrast, do not fear new thoughts, new ideas or new ways.

In this week’s segment of the essay, Emerson calls for throwing-off the mantle of “conformity” in your own life, promising that it will make your life more rewarding, interesting, enjoyable and exciting.
