Balancing act

This post makes me think–the true critical struggle we face is defining who we are as individuals. And then, finding our place in a community and not losing that individuality. Is it about maintaining that balance between total individual and, for lack of a better term, total lemming?

Thinking about it more, maybe it’s not a balancing act, but a calibration–some need the embrace of community, and others need to stand alone on the beach. It varies depending on time and place and state of mind. Forcing someone into one end or the other does that person no good.
