Sometimes it can seem like everyone acts in a certain way. That there’s an accepted norm and anything other than that is just wrong.
Everyone does x. And because people think everyone is doing it, they think it’s what they ought to be doing as well.
But that isn’t the case.
In a different society or a different country, these norms don’t exist.
People might not even be aware of things we take for granted. Things we assume must be universal.
So feel free to let go of your preconceptions.
You get to make the choice. You get to make your own rules. If it isn’t helping you, let it go.
