People always seem to have opinions about how we should live our lives, don’t they? From serious issues such as health, to personal ones like political or religious belifs to the more trivial like how we dress or wear our hair (the photo today is my hair and people do have opinions) everyone seems to have an opinion. And in the computer age we seem compelled to express them.
Of course there is a time to listen and sometimes apply suggestions from others, but we have to resist becoming a copy of anyone else. Being someone other than who you were created to be is slavery. You don’t want to go there.
