At some point, however, we must decide within ourselves whether to spend every day trying to be like everyone else because society says we should or living each day true to ourselves.
Our strength as a person is proven through what we decide.
Many social constructs, such as etiquette and protocol, for instance, rely on conformity as the means of distinguishing between ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders.’ Perhaps every individual has realized the importance of conformity and acceptance, especially at the developmental stage of the adolescent.
Since the adult society is perceived as hostile by adolescents who are not regarded as fully-fledged group members (i.e., they are not given same legal and social rights), teenagers tend to construct groups and cultures of their own.
The benefits of being true to ourselves greatly outweigh any negative aspects of choosing that path.
One of the most obvious advantages of being true to ourselves is that people will see us, perhaps for the first time, without a mask.If people face with any kind of social impact such as group pressure, great part of them show conformity by changing their behaviors, ideas, decisions in expected way.A person conforms if he or she chooses a course of action that a majority favors or that is socially acceptable.Not conforming to the norms of the adult world is often regarded as a prerequisite for being accepted in the adolescent group.Therefore, it is possible that multiple identities can lead to conflicting desires to conform to the norms of different groups at the same time.If we want to be great, we can safely assume that we must be willing to be misunderstood.However, we cannot be misunderstood if we conform to the standards of society.People will see what we are really like on the inside.They will see our talents, imperfections, and preferences.Interaction with others is a natural result of living in society.In the process of interaction, society and its rules has a social impact on each individual.
