In our acts of rebellion - in our desire to set boundaries by drawing that defiant line in the sand - we sometimes push ourselves into untenable positions, behaving in ways that are not in our own best interests - just to make a point!
Back in the days when we began this behavior, we had to do it to assert our independence…
Now we need to ask ourselves if it still makes sense, and if so, in what form?

DOES PUSHING BACK STILL MAKE SENSE?
The easy answer is NO!
After a certain age, (maybe early twenties?) the people we were pushing back against no longer have the same power over us…
Think about it:
Who are you really rebelling against now?
Someone put it really well when he said: "My father has changed a lot. HE no longer gets on my case… but his voice in my head is still loud and clear!"
* So, who are you rebelling against now?
* Who criticized you back then? Parent, sibling, teacher, friend?
* Are they really still on your case now?
Do you still:
* Keep the fridge door open?
* Leave the lid up on the toilet?
* Wear clothes that THEY hated?
* Eat forbidden food?
* Get drunk?
What else is on your list?
Now ask yourself :
If those things hadn't been criticized would you still be doing them?
Do you really want to or are you still reacting to childhood bullies?
