Since I was young, I have not had much luck with being a follower. I haven’t had much luck with being a leader either. Sometimes, especially in gym class, I tried to blend in so no one would notice how much my athletic skills are lacking.
When I have tried to follow the leader, it hasn’t always felt genuine. I didn’t go to a big university or join the military because it would not have worked for me. So I found a nice, small university that was a good fit for me. Even though I met a guy at Cedar Point that tried to get me to change my mind about where to go, I stuck with my first choice. He came up to me and said, “Don’t go to that school!” What if I had followed his advice? The chances of being miserable would have been high. It’s not worth it to follow the advice of someone who doesn’t really care.
So I will continue to follow whatever path feels right because that’s what feels true to me.
