People create different rules for themselves.
But how do they get created and why?
Rules are a way people try and prevent something from happening again that happened in the past.
It goes like this.
You Don’t like the results
So you ask your self (non consciously) how can I prevent that from happening again?
Then you create a rule that if you had that rule in place before, this situation would not have happened.
Then you forget about what you did not want to happen, and live the next 10 years inside of this rule.
The funny part being this rule will not even really prevent that event from happening again. AND
The rule also keeps you from other great experiences in the future.
Individual Rules. They are always so interesting.
Look at why you made the rule in the first place, and then just don’t allow that thing the rule was trying to prevent.
Then you can actually enjoy the present and your future without carrying so much of the past around.
