When the Rules Don't Apply (120)

Today we are talking about the rules we may have made in our lives, that at some point, gave us a frame of reference in how to navigate life in a sane and mature way. Also, those moments in life when we are asked to figure out if those rules are to be followed to the letter, or if a more subtle discernment is called for. 

In our discussion:

  • The benefit of “rules” and how they can help us navigate new territory.

  • How rules can also keep us in needlessly small lives.

  • How to discern the difference between a useful rule and one that no longer applies.

  • Learning how to trust ourselves and have faith in our discernment.

  • How to let go of holding on to, “I hope I don’t screw up” and move forward in life.
