redefine themselves because they
need to adapt to society, just like
fashion. Imagine being somewhere
where everybody puts on fashionable clothes, save for a single person
who is wearing traditional clothing.

Of course, he will change his clothes
as well and become a member of
the fashionable group, because he
wants to fit in. If the world was without technology, life would be hard.

development. The
world is changing,

Thus, people want to make their life
simpler and more comfortable; they
need to accept change even if they
do not want it. In some significant
ways I think the world pushes people to change. It's not necessarily a
good thing but it's a necessary evil.
