In a world that is constantly telling you how to dress, talk, smile, eat, and even identify, Joy Iseki’s Live Your Younique Life is a beacon in the darkness.
In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” Your identity is priceless, in every sense of the word. Every little deviation and disparity exists for a purpose; each person is, in his/her way, unique. It is only as we begin to move into adulthood, and begin to incorporate society’s standards that we stray.
The pressure society puts on us is evident in the roles it expects us to play. These roles, more often than not, end up costing us a vital part of our individualities. The result is people who don’t know who they are. Each one exists as a part of the system, unable to function without being told what to do. The rise of the digital age has further expedited the process, keeping society’s influence much closer at hand. In the long run, we end up stuck following trends, and doing things not because we want to, but to fit in.
