My gosh your words are amazing and I connect with so many of them, and this is just one of them.....and I am at a loss of ideas to do in a situation such as this. Staying on someone's well trodden path when I know I belong in the wilderness....it is quite impossible I have found to convince the person who loves the well trodden paths, to come with you and see just how magical the wilderness is.

Oh, but the wilderness is dangerous. And yet it may hold many beautiful secrets, for those with enough patience and bravery, and a machete big enough.

"two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry i could not travel both
and be one traveler, long i stood
and looked down one as far as i could
to where it bent in the undergrowth

then took the other, as just as fair
though having perhaps the better claim
because it was grassy and wanted wear
though, as for that, the passing there
had worn them really about the same"

i'm sorry but that's the first thing i thought of
i had to memorize this last year okay

This is great. It makes me think of the way society conditions so many people to the point where they are mostly behaving out of habit or copying others to fit in rather than conscious thought.

First idea I had was that what a nice way to tell somebody that she/he's boring. :)

On second take, your view is much along the lines I am seeing this. It is easier to blend in and do what everybody else does or expects us to do than truly be the person one would want to be, finding one's own path in life.
