Firstly, what is a fad?
A fad is an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something.
For eg: fidget spinners, spiked hair, games like Pokemon Go and PUBG.
Fads are emmencely compelling to fall into. Like if your friend has a fidget spinner and there are 5 other people you know who have fidget spinners then it is really difficult to not buy a fidget spinner for your ownself.
But should we resist fads?
If you value your time then yes. Buying into something just because everyone else is while you don’t feel a need for it isn’t right according to me.
Sporting spiked hair because it’s the new cool while not taking care of your own identity is not right.
I’m so proud of the fact that I never even tried my hand at games like Pokemon Go and PUBG while there were so many around me caught up with them.
Fads are for people who have plenty of time and money to waste.
I don’t have plenty of either
