What do you think about the term "fitting in" at school, work, or an outing somewhere?

What do you think about the term " fitting" in at school, work or an outing somewhere?
I would just want a philosophical approach. Not too much on experiences. Is it better to be an individualist or does fitting in just plainly not exist?

    Apr 26 2012: I've been bullied countless times by different social groups every time I have tried to "fit in." honestly, it doesn't really reflect someone's true individuality if they have to go to a group of people for a certain personality or personal style. Teenagers nowadays lack self confidence and need other people to make them feel 'accepted.' As for myself, I am proud to be unique and do not need other's influence to make my own decisions.
