“The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you but yourself.” ~Rita Mae Brown
When I was in my teens, everyone in high school worked hard to fit in with her peer group. Even the non-conformists dressed like the other non-conformists.
One of the gifts of aging is discovering that you finally feel comfortable in your own skin. You stop caring whether or not your clothing (or anything else you own) is on trend. You stop trying to impress others and start making choices that reflect your own taste and character. In short, you worry less about what other people think of you — because you realize that most people are typically preoccupied with themselves, anyway. ~Cindy La Ferle
