    I don't really like tradition.

    But it's not like I don't like it just because I want to be different or something. That's stupid.

    I just don't like blindly following what others have done in the past, without asking why.

    If I like something, I like it, if I don't I don't. But it takes me quite a bit of time to figure out what I actually like.

    Do many people really hate traditional thoughts and practices? I don't really meet or see that many of them around, in fact, quite the opposite.

    Although i realise that prpl means 'why don't people just be who they are, rather than try so hard to be something else and project fakeness', to which i reply that sometimes it takes people a long time to realise and be confident enough in who they are to not adopt a particular trend as a means of identifying who they are.

    But thinking on the title of the post more, i really do wonder what traditional and tradition means.

    For me, for example, as woman, does it mean that i am meant to be married with children and a stay at home mum? Or in this day and age, am i being traditional in NOT being a married stay at home mother?

    Is being yourself bucking tradition if you chose to be something other than the 'norm'? and what even is the norm anyway? It changes from culture to culture.

    Yea, I was questioning this as well.

    Prpl sorta sounded like tatoos are non traditional...

    But I do not know one person other than me and my mom who doesn't have one. It's the norm to get a tatoo round these parts.

    The "norm" line is blurry and subjective I think.

    Traditions are those customs and practices which are handed down from generation to generation. Yes, they will be different for different cultures, so what is traditional in one culture may not be in another. Traditions eventually change, and we can even make new traditions, but if you are doing something relatively uncommon in the past couple of generations, you are probably not following tradition. Still OK - just not traditional.

    I don't like tradition because it forces people to adopt a specific lifestyle, whether they want to or not. Maximal freedom can only be accomplished by breaking social/traditional rules.

    Btw @prplchknz 6w7 for your enneagram?

    so why do people try so hard to be different? I want a quiet life, a good life, a dog/cat, friends, internet, and a decent job that's gonna put me in at least middle class.

    what are they hiding from?
    E6's value traditions and an ordinary lifestyle. A lifestyle like described above would actually depress rather than fulfill me. Maybe it's just because I still have to experience how hard life could be without the support of family and home. However right now I want to live a life without any boundaries of my social circle and responsibilities. My dad was that way before he started to settle down.

    I don't hate tradition, I just hate that tradition is the vehicle that keeps many an irrelevant idea from just dyeing off and making room for new ways. I hate any attitude that tradition is unquestionable. But tradition itself can be good.
