You bring up a good point. One must always keep in mind, in these cases, that the important thing isn't specifically NOT following something simply because a lot of other people do, nor, on the other foot, following something blindly in a herd mentallity. The important thing about life is being happy with yourself. Don't worry about what others think about you, as the ones who really matter, and who will have the greatest impact on your life will accept this. I know, I know, it's almost cliché to say "Be yourself, let people love you for who you are, blah blah blah..." Well, it's true.
Also, while we shouldn't, necessarily FEAR change, we should be wary, for not all change is good, nor, if it isn't such, do we always have the option nor ability to change things back to the way they were, in the first place. Just something to think about.

Welcome to the group, by the way. It's a pleasure, and I'd like to hear more out of you.
