Other People's Influence

Don't let anyone influence you - do what you want to do.

So many people are sheep that I get exactly what you mean. Just because some politician or actor says something, doesn't mean it's right, or even true! Stop and think!

Then again, if you know someone to be good, kind and intelligent, then follow that person's example.

But if everyone does only what they want to do, before long Chaos reins supreme... Try doing what one knows is right by following the rules and if you don't like the rules work to change them...

I'm taking the point to be that we shouldn't feel influenced or pressured to do something that we don't feel comfortable with. I think too many people feel pressured/influenced into becoming what other people expect them to be and often we just bite our tongues or go along for fear of upsetting someone or rocking the boat. The point is to be yourself, a unique individual, not everyone might like you or, everyone might love you, but hey, as another reply said you won't be another 'sheep' in the pack.

Hi Jo Jo,

I agree, I think that was what Roberta was saying. Influence from other people can be a good influence or a bad influence or a just not the best for you influence. There are a lot of pressures to be this way or that way, often from very well meaning friends and family. Be yourself, if you aren't being you, who will be?
