Individualism by definition is being yourself no matter what. No matter who you are with, no matter what you have been told, and no matter what situation you are in. It is being true to yourself even if no one else agrees with you. It means to truly be, you. It is also one of the hardest things to do. It is something that most people struggle with.

Being true to yourself seems like an easy task, but in truth, is possibly the hardest thing to do. Individualism is so hard to have because it cannot be taught by a parent or in a classroom. It cannot be looked up or read somewhere. It is only in you and it can change from time to time but that should only be decided by you.

As an individual you absorb information including facts, events, or even just small things that affect you. It is what you do with this new information that makes you, you. Individualism being lost is easy because of the opinions of others. Many people lose themselves when they do not do the research or just trust people because, “that’s what’s easier.”

Losing yourself happens most when you let others change your moral code. So no matter what happens in your life, never let others persuade you to do anything that is against your moral code. If you feel nervous, just trust yourself and do what feels right to you. That bad feeling of nervousness is a good thing and something you can, and should, trust because when you ignore that feeling, you’re losing yourself.
