The concept of “fitting in” seems to be an ongoing dilemma for many, especially for teenagers and young adults. But why? Why is it that fitting in is necessary within our society today?

I dreamed of having a white castle- looking mansion, with puppies running around and a slide from my dream bedroom to the downstairs area.
