Curt Rosengren, The Occupational Adventure (sm), writes about Why should I?
“So many of our obstacles come from the preprogrammed tapes we carry around in our heads. Shoulds and shouldn’ts, oughts and oughtn’ts. They often control our actions like puppets on a string without our ever even realizing it.”
I definitely see where should puts one “in a constant state of obligation.” I often box myself into existing instead of breaking free of should in order to really live.
