Building A Cupboard
I find myself feeling more and more like him each day. Words like conformity, expectations, norms, ignorance and indifference all crossed my mind as I watched that - and believe you me, not many YouTube videos can hold my attention for an entire 8 minutes (concentration span of a fruit fly). The thing is, like he understands - in his case - his parents' fear of difference, change and breaking free of the Life Manual, I can appreciate those of others.
I am, however, very much in that frame of mind where he walked into the shed and destroyed his 'perfect manual cupboard'. I am still angry, frustrated, confused and sadly, lost.
I was never much good at following instructions anyway. I will build MY OWN cupboard.
