When do you stop obeying?

Your parents pick out what you study and where. They then nudge you towards the job which you soon hate. They helpfully tell you that its all for the long term, when this work experience would help you study further. You go to grad school to get out of the previous job you hated. You then take the highest paying job you get out of grad college, making more money than you ever hoped to. You happily obey for a while at the new job, enjoy the golden cage you just built for yourself. Your relatives decide its time for you to get married, they’ll be more than willingly pick out your spouse for you.

If you are really lucky you’ll never realize that you are living with instructions. But more often than not somewhere down the line you will find out and continue living in quiet desperation, because really you don’t know any other way.

If you feel angry about living with instructions, then stop obeying. The world won’t end if you start living.
