There was an interesting argument here about “choosing the road less taken”
But that’s ok, sometimes people think there’s a stigma with liking something that’s popular and that you have to be different or always go against the norm. People like to invoke Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” when making a case for being different. Whenever someone describes this poem they always applaud the road not taken. I think that’s the rebel in all of us. It’s the allure of the contrarian. I like the way you present the comic as two paths down the road of life, neither road a bad choice, just different. There’s nothing inherently wrong with choosing the road more traveled. There’s a reason that road has been taken by so many others, and many have found happiness there. Besides, whether you take a path because it’s popular, or you choose the alternative because it’s not, you are still allowing others to dictate your decisions and can never really be yourself.
I think I like this part a lot. Over the past few years (say 2, 3), I have always been concerned with choosing between the popular option & the not-so-popular. And many times, the thought of choosing the less popular alternative just because it was less popular dawned on me.
On another note, things are better inside.
