On Breaking Rules

A sign in the forest that says "please stay on trail."

Rules are rarely set in stone. And particularly so when you’re dealing with people.

Even if something seems like an insurmountable obstacle, a simple question, a friendly conversation, or a sympathetic ear might completely remove it.

Not all the time, not everywhere, and not for everyone, but it’s probably still worth a shot. And if the alternative is an inevitable defeat, there’s absolutely no reason why you wouldn’t give it a try.
