As a creative person and or a person in general we tend to not follow what we enjoy. By that I mean we follow what is so called trendy at the time. Then we conform our mentality and work to be cool. But don’t let me come across as I am saying it is bad.
What I am saying is that you should stay in your own lane. Staying in your own lane aka swimming in your own current. Instead of following doing what everyone else is doing do your own thing. There’s nothing wrong with following trends but if you do it your own way you’ll stand out more.
Which will show you basically putting your own mix on what is trendy. Then you’ll have people copying what you are doing. When people start copying you, you know that you are doing something right.
So do not be afraid to stay in your own lane and or swimming in your own current. The fear is nothing to be afraid of. Especially standing out and doing things your own way, that’ll be more fulfilling than just following what society puts upon you.
