Breaking the Rules

 photo 2014-03-15-21-33-43_zps0957676a.jpg
There comes a time when the rules will need to be broken. It's the moment when you stop listening to other people telling you what it is that you want and start listening to yourself. It's the moment when you say, "yes, that's nice but I want something better". We as human beings are naturally inclined to follow the pack and seek out acceptance, but there will come a time when the fabric of your being can no longer constrict to fit within the shapes carved out for you.

Being who you are, standing up for who you are, and not apologizing for it makes you a rebel in and of itself. The majority of everything we do, we do in such a way that makes everyone else happy: the way we walk, the way we fix our hair, the way we eat, the way we dress; but when do we decide that making everyone else happy and making ourselves happy is no longer the same thing? For what cause and reason do we stop, put our foot down and say "No, this is what I want, this is who I am, and this is what I am going to do"?  I am not saying to be senseless and break rules for the hell of it(unless that makes you happy); this isn't about throwing tantrums while reciting Wu Tang Clan lyrics. It's about standing up for yourself and doing what makes you happy even when everyone else disagrees. Following the path of self love is the most rebellious thing you could ever do.
