Bullying Conformity

Under attack

[My photo]

About this photo. When I was out and about one day, I heard this noise up in the air. When I looked up, there was this egret being chased by two birds. It took refuge in a tree, but those birds kept on pestering it. It eventually flew away. And this gave me the idea for this post.

Be yourself some people say . . . and then they go ahead and dictate who that self should be.

Should your actions follow your belief?

Are you what you say, what you do, or what others tell you to do?

Should you drop what you believe in to follow and to please others? To fit into the latest fad?

“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive.” Ephesians 4 vs 14

You have the right to believe what you want, and my gosh, so do others.Β  No right to teased, coerced, twist, not literally, the arms of others. And this goes for everyone, and I mean everyone. πŸ™‚

  1. you have a great point of view … but in real life we have to change sometimes for others happiness … I do follow what I believe in … but its just sometimes I have to change my point of view … for good reasons though .. πŸ™‚

  2. Compromise is a good in certain situations. For example, there was a famous actress, who is a vegetarian, that had a boyfriend that wasn’t. Whenever she cooked for him, there was meat involved. Even though she didn’t believe in eating meat, she still cooked it for him. She herself didn’t eat.

    Certain things can be change for others happiness.

    I believe that one’s relationship with God is a foundation, and if there are things that are going to put cracks in that foundation then it shouldn’t become a part of that base. There’s nothing fanatical about it. Where fanaticism comes in is when you add things and do things that portray(s) who Christ/God isn’t. πŸ™‚
