Learning the rules is important, for many reasons.
When you learn the rules of the game, any game including life, you understand how to interact with people, what’s acceptable, and what’s not.
If you pay attention, you also learn about how the game is structured, what the game is all about, and whether this is a game you want to play or not.
You then learn when to break the rules, bend the rules, or simply ignore the rules. Of course, there are consequences to all three actions, and sometimes that’s just fine.
Ultimately, it’s all about how we show up and learn about ourselves in relation to the rules. Are you a rule follower? A rule Bender? A rule Breaker? Or are you someone who would just rather play another game entirely.
The choice is always yours, if the rules allow it…
