A bit of self-disclosure:
I don’t like rules.
Actually, I hate them, to be honest.
Authority aggravates me, unless it’s my own.
I think for myself, trust my own judgment. Right or wrong, certainly sometimes wrong, that’s my inclination.
I choose my work accordingly. I will not spend much time where others insist on setting my path. Such is quite intolerable. I find it, right or wrong, offensive.
I try to rein in this instinct as appropriate, but there it is.
I will not try to be who I am not.
I obey rules often, of course; not possible to get by otherwise. Don’t like it, but there we are. Life is full of hard decisions.
There are costs, risks, consequences.
So be it.
