If one person out of ten is thinking differently than the other nine who have the same opinion, that one person is wrong.

What do you think of the sentence above?

Sometimes, it can be the other way around. That one person can be right and the other nine can be wrong. Let's not use the word right or wrong.

Each of us has the right to choose for ourselves. The risks, maybe regret and heartache too will be on our shoulders. That can be the after-effects of personal decisions but if the decision made include a community then we will also be accepting accusations or blame for making the wrong decision.

The best option is to follow the community choice regardless of our own opinions. Whatever that is on our mind will be unimportant and trash if we go against the community. It is quite stressful to fight for things that we are not even half sure about the truth behind. Which truth? Is also undefined.

Being able to choose freely is considered as being lucky. Not given option is often said as bad luck. What if options are given but the end result are the same?

There will be a time that we will be given the option to choose with our hands tied behind our backs. It will feel like standing in a room with no escape will the wall moving closer and closer to us. It might feel like drowning and waiting to die because we cannot swim. It is suffocating because there is no way out.

What can we do?

Hold on. Hold on as long as we can, as long as we are allowed to. Perhaps in that closed room, if we look up, there might be a rope that we can climb and get out from the roof. Perhaps while we are drowning, someone might come to save us.

What happens if we cannot hold on any longer?

There will be no other option than to give in and continue living with hopes that there will be no regrets in the future. Well, it is a devastating solution but then having regret will teach us a lot of things. We will be stronger next time to stand for our opinion or perhaps it will teach us not to be stubborn.

No matter where we end to, we can just call it fate. If it is heartbreaking, learn to let it go. If it ends happily, learn to be grateful.

I don't call it faith if I am forced into something by others. Especially not if they are the wrong sheep. Therefore I stay away from people as much as possible. I do not bother them and I expect them to do the same if it comes to me.

I wish I can stay away but it is not an option for me. I still need to work.

There is this saying "do not join the crowd". Like you stated, that one person could be right. If u can beat them, you don't have to join them. Hold unto your belief as long as it's the right one. Perhaps someday the crowd will realize they are wrong and you right.

I will be waiting for that someday. The crowd I meant in this article is a crowd that I cannot defeat alone. Neither can I stay away.
