LET’S JUST SEE WHAT HAPPENS by Valerie Cheers Brown
You don’t have to follow rules all of the time. Not every single rule is worth following. Sometimes people who make the rules forget and break them and a kid is so quick to observe and let them know, “You did it so why can’t I?” . So why do we have to follow them? If one person gets away with rules, then why do they have to be followed? Why do people say it is okay to make mistakes, just don’t keep making them? Rules are not universal, so why do they have to be followed? Why can’t we agree to disagree? There is no such thing as one right way to do anything, do you think? There is no such thing as the wrong way, do you think? Then there should be so such thing as the right way!
Sometimes you just don’t agree with the rules in the first place! Rules can keep you from doing the right thing. We all have been in predicaments where we want to do the right thing, but the rules simply don’t allow it, then what? Rules are for breaking and when rules are unjust, you are unjust if you simply go by the rules. What if you want to make a difference for the world and you know who they are directed to may get pissed at you. When you tell the truth about things which you know for a fact is about helping all living creations, sometimes the rules must be broken in order to do the right thing.
Sometimes rules can end up hurting you and others especially when it comes to your livelihood. What is more important, you living a long and prosperous life or going by the rules because they say you must take what they give you.
Think about it: Guidelines or rules are frequently planned as speculations, and are infrequently relevant in each circumstance. Once in a while, they may even wind up harming you and even worsening the circumstance or even situation.
If following the rules does nothing but bring harm to people, perhaps it is time to start breaking them.
The only thing you will be cheating when going by the rules is living a long life not being able to tell or talk about it to your grandchildren’s children.
“If you don’t break the rules, the rules will break you.”
“I am free no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them. If I find them obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.” – Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)
