Are you constantly living your life playing by the rules?
I’m not talking about breaking the law, I mean the rules that guide your life. How you deal with people, what’s expected from you by your friends and family, how you should act and how you should look and dress.
We are all abiding by a set of rules which cause tremendous amounts of anxiety and fear of breaking them, but we never question the foundation on which these rules were created.
- Who the hell wrote these rules and are they actually benefiting me?
- Are the rules I live my life by going to bring me the freedom and happiness I really want?
- Are these rules being enforced externally or internally?
If you are truly free, or at least aspire to be, you need to start living your life by your own rules and not by the rules which have been ingrained into you from a young age.
