live outside the box

we tell ourselves we can't live without love, financial stability, a roof above our heads, shoes on our feet, an education. we can't live without a job; we can't have a job without fitting in. and fitting in is what our society is all about. talk right, act right, be the same as everyone else and you won't be singled out. close yourself in a box of normality and don't express your differences. maybe even be better at being "normal" than everyone else is and you will be powerful in society. we say we can't live without fitting in. what about fitting out?
