Thinking for yourself in the face of doubt

Monday, October 30, 2006

This used to be real hard for me in many ways. I don't like to be a pioneer, and I don't like to draw attention to myself. Not negative attention anyway. But over the years, I have become much less of a follower, because I noticed that the things that really interest me and make me feel good, no one else I know even cares about. So I just tossed out all sorts of weird feelings, and just went ahead and did the things according to what I found right for me (becoming a vegetarian, standing up for animal rights, clicker training my dogs, when most of my neighbors think I am beyond help and just a crazy German person). It feels good to develop an opinion. And I even started asking uncomfortable questions at restaurants, how dishes are prepared. I don't want to have any dead animal in my soup. And all of a sudden, I see more and more local stores come out with healthy, vegetarian meals. I guess sometimes I am just ahead of my time.
