    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...

    Made to Be Broken

    Rules are made to broken - as long as no one gets hurt and theres fun to be had then rules shouldn't exist!! I make my own rules and live by them. At school I was such a rebel - I did not like authority and did not like rules, still don't. It was me that always got caught smoking...

    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!

    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...

    Life Is Too Short Not To Be Lived

    Let the wind mess up your hair, your rules and your certainties. Let the fear of liking, loving and caring go away. Sadness? Let go off it! Let the wind take the locks of your beautiful smile, open the windows of your heart and free your inner drama. Let the wind teach you...

    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...

    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.

    Rulebreaker

    I'm a bit of rolebreaker online and in real life as well but I don't have a good history of it. One of the times i've broken a rule online was during my first years on Deviantart, my gallery consisted of copyrighted photos that I had photomaniped. I didn't know it was against...

    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...:)

    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...

    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...

    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'.

    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...
