It is important to break the rules at times. Rules can drastically limit your potential in life, preventing you from exploring emotions and trying new things.
Think about the negative things you tell yourself on a daily basis, such as “My parents/teachers said I couldn’t do that.” Each of these negative thoughts are derived from rules and societal expectations which need to be broken down in order for people to truly find happiness or success.
The people that told me I couldn’t do something were wrong. They said it wasn’t possible, but they didn’t know what was going to happen next.
Sometimes it can seem like there’s no point in sticking up for yourself but standing by and letting someone disrespect you or others is demeaning to not only your self-worth but also the other person. Speak out when necessary!
Some people might not like what you have to say, but that doesn’t mean you should let them silence your voice. Speak up and defend yourself or the belief or person! Benefits of speaking out include feeling proud and brave while facing adversity from those who are trying to put others down.
You may have been through one or several painful experiences in your past which has made an impact on your psyche and is still keeping you from moving forward with power and a purpose in life. But don’t worry! There is a way out of that dark place!
It’s not easy to admit when a negative experience has taken over your life, but don’t let it define you. In order to break free from these mental chains (and the rules that have held you back) and move on successfully with your life, take action! The empowerment of taking this leap will do wonders for how empowered you feel; so start today by breaking those old rules holding you back with an act of defiance.
You are the protagonist in your own story and you can choose to be the hero. You know that through self-reflection, though it may not have been fair what happened to you or how others treated you; but there’s still a way forward for better things.
You’ve had plenty of time now as an adult with some perspective on life’s ups and downs — don’t let yourself get stuck blaming all these challenges for who they made me into without also realizing I am more than this bad experience has shaped my identity around some circumstances.
Optimism is important in life because without it, everything would feel like a drag. Trusting yourself to do the right thing and finding joy in breaking rules will help you get out of your comfort zone (which has been holding you back from what’s next). Comparing yourself with others can lead to cynicism about other people’s lives as well as yours; don’t let that happen!
If you want your life to have meaning, don’t let someone else tell you what it should be. Don’t listen when they say that something is too risky or not worth the risk. Be a guide for yourself and always make decisions with risks in mind – but never forget about rewards either as well!
