I Refuse to Follow the Petty Unwritten Rules of Society

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 423 People

    They're Fun to Break

    There are some societal mores and guidelines that I find absolutely ridiculous...so I ignore them. Its not really about being a rebel or breaking rules (although that is fun); its about being true to who I am. And, if my path veers away from society's petty rules, so be it.

    I Am Not Going to Accept Social Engineering

    They're Just Plain Dumb

    Now first, let me get this straight.  I'm not a complete rebel/anti-conformist.  In general, I follow the law and do what people tell me, as long as it doesn't endanger myself or anyone else.  Some rules I think are very good.  Many American laws are simply...

    I don't let the media

    and society dictate how I think and feel about things like they try to do. Everybody has an opinion these days, thanks to social media. If I don't agree with something, so be it. If I do, so be it. If a person doesn't agree with something that the majority of society does, that...

    Just Becuase You Think...

    Something is perfectly right. Does not mean that it is. Everything in life is okay. Not everything in life thats out of your norm boundaries is wrong or a disorder. Problem is people label things as disorders because it's an inconvenience to someone else.
