It’s a massive question, isn’t it–for whom are we living? I have a feeling most of us either couldn’t answer or, if we could, “for ourselves” would not be the first answer. But if *not* for ourselves, then how on earth can we summon the energy again and again, day after day? Because, Petals, living by “shoulds” is exhausting.
But that’s how we’re taught, whether overtly or covertly, we *ought* to be living. Well, I say it’s high time for a revolution. It may take us longer than we’d ever imagine, but perhaps we could, day by day, start claiming back our time, imagining the elusive “could.”
