In response to “easier said than done though

Realizing it is the hardest part.

You would think not caring would be easier, but I guess not.

Easier than putting in the effort to change yourself for the better, right?

On one hand, you shouldn't have to conform to the views of people around you. On the other hand, no man is an island and you're going to need people to help you out from time to time. If you have character flaws, you should try to fix them at least to a small extent. Isn't self-improvement and cohesion (I can't think of a better word for everyone doing the same kind of stuff) the backbone of civilisation?

I think this is one of the things that we need a middle ground for. In an impossibly extreme scenario, total lack of conformism could lead to the break ups of communities and civilisation as a whole, but a more realistic outcome would be the halt of progress because no one thinks they should change for others' benefit. In an impossibly extreme scenario, over-conformism could lead to a mechanical, cookie cutter society, but it would probably just lead to self-esteem issues like what we have now.

Ideally, there would be enough conformism for people to be more sociable, yet not so much that people are restricted to a small set of actions, clothes etc depending on their jobs.
