A person with a strong character not influenced by other people never leave , no matter how insistent as others. I’ve always admired that, even if some persevere in their simplicity . Important is that the ” stupidity” is theirs and have not learned it from elsewhere and important is that they really believe strongly in something . We all have ideas and our principles just as we sometimes allow other people to demolish the principles and ideas . Why is this happening? We are too weak ?I know we all have the impression that we are free to do what we want . Freedom is relative and sometimes listening to the advice of others and acquire it as ours without realizing it. Learn to have your own personality , even though many may consider us weird or crazy. It does not matter!
