I Break Rules

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 491 People

    Hmm..

    Who makes the rules anyway? In my case, my dad does. And it's driving me completely insane sometimes. Still I think I need them sometimes, although I'd never admit it to him of course. I just wanna be free. But I guess no one will ever be REALLY free.

    While Driving Sometimes And I Am Not Proud Of It!

    Okay, so I jump red lights sometimes. Drive and talk on the phone. Seatbelts are not my best friends. And when the signal is yellow, instead of slowing down I speed up. Have gone over the speed limit many times even in busy roads. Might have parked in no parking zones quite a few...

    Fun

    so, what? What's the fun to life if you can't break some rules. They are there to stop you doing enjoyable things. Breaking them is fun, and always lead to fun. That's why I do it alot. It's sometimes no fun unless you're caught though...

    Lack of Trust

    I don't obey most rules/ laws. I base my actions on what I consider be moral, and have never done anything terrible like kill, drive drunk, steal (well, outside some petty theft, which I don't really do anymore). But my morals govern my actions because I don't even trust the...

    Achy Breaky Rules

    I enjoy breaking the little rules. Not so much for the big ones, but I like to accomplish what someone says I cannot do. It was a long time ago but I will never forget my grade 8 teacher telling me that I could not take the Arts and Science 5 year program in High School because I...

    Rules??? What Are Those?

    Rules???? What are those???? I have no idea what those are, and I think that I break every rule that are set. I don't think that we should have rules anyways. I am an adult, I don't think that we need rules. Anyways the rules don't apply to me!

    You should never try and rule anybody, so why would you abide by a rule. I'm unruly at times so I do follow rules but in my own way. Since rules are made to be broken I have as a general rule ..balance...:)

    why people think there's all these "rules" we're supposed to follow. Like don't post two pictures on instagram in a day or wear the same shirt you wore yesterday, and how if you don't like someone you still tell them their hair looks nice when you see them because you're afraid...

    *giggles Mischievously*

    Yep, I admit I am a naughty little rule-breaker. :PI don't like being told what to do or not do. I feel I shouldn't have to follow rules, I can think for myself! Rules are often so arbitrary anyway, they don't always apply all the time; sometimes the rules need to be interpreted...

    Midnight Curfew

    I still live at home as I can't afford to move out yet, but I pay my mum keep every month. One house rule she has which I find really infuriating is the midnight curfew. She will lock up at midnight, so that means if I'm going out for the night (which is only once in a while...

    Rules

    Rules are dumb, we could be better off with a lot less of them. I like the freedom to do almost whatever I want and If I must suffer consequences I'll understand, and learn. I realized recently that that's one thing that really bugs me about the Bible. I'm religious and all and...

    Well technically its called 'bending',based on respect for the 'true intent' of the rules,and whether or not they actually apply ,under the banner of 'for the greater good'..and notwithstanding the concept of 'exceptional circumstance'.
