Daily Prompt: Copycat

The ultimate form of being a copycat has to be the tribe. The word copycat has a very negative connotation, but being part of a tribe doesn’t have to be, it gives everyone comfort to be with their own kind. But this, of course, can be negative if it breeds racism and mistrust. Although not such a problem if it means wearing black clothes while you listen to heavy metal music.

We all need a sense of belonging, and if you don’t get it at home or school, then why not go looking for it. But you must still be an individual within your tribe. So maybe the most important thing is not to be a copycat in thought, set your own course and don’t always follow the prevailing wind.
