Me: “The Mask of Conformity”
“I am special, unique, just like everyone else.”
Conformity is the religion of the new age, and identity is the price. The ceaseless selfies, Starbucks sipping and pretentious #ootd (Outfit of the Day) posts on Instagram has reduced us to blind followers of the mainstream. What was once hip and cool Read more →
