Do As I Please

I love being able to do what I want... whenever, wherever, with whomever and for as long as I want. I hate boundaries, time constraints, and being told what to do when I don't ask for help. I respect boundaries, authority and structure when I feel like it deserves my respect.

I love weekends when I can spend my time however I please. If I want to lay down in the middle of the living room and stare at the ceiling for an hour, I can, and nothing is more pleasing then that freedom. I feel like I don't have time to breath when I have appointments and I'm needed in places I don't want to be. In school, I often feel suffocated by schedules, rules, and being constantly evaluated. I realize that, unfortunately, going to school is the only way I can get onto the path I need to be on, so I put up with some of its disadvantages.

You said NEED what about the path you WANT to be on. the path you choose is the most important freedom you can have don't let others take that choice away from you

I also have a difficult time with boundaries and regulations. I feel that if I'm not hurting anyone, I should be fine with what I'm doing. <br />

Boundaries are imaginary. There are no real boundaries. Not where the ocean meets the shore, not where Canada and the US meet. They aren't real. It is a concept we have collectively created and accept. However, there are those of us that struggle with this.

I SO agree with you

I used to thrive with boundaries and rules. As I got older, I realized that I'd become dazed and had settled into this horribly dull and uncreative pattern because I was so worried about breaking rules at school. <br />
<br />
Now, that I've seen this in myself, I've been learning how to break the rules and live the way I want to again.

Ditto Ditto and Ditto! But yes, life goes on and without the suffocation our 'do as i please time' wouldnt be so precious or indulgent
