Fuck Should

A couple years ago I decided to largely remove the word "should" from my vocabulary and it marked a much needed step toward continued liberation. The word should is a weight, it is by nature condemning and restrictive. I should, you should, it should. When we feel we should, we feel oppressed. "You should" is a nod towards inappropriate control. "It should" reflects rigidity, leaving little room to accept what is. So this week I encourage you to rephrase your "shoulds". Phrases that have been helpful for me have been things like "I need", "I'd like to" and maybe even freeing yourself to say "I don't want to". Fuck should, get that shit outta here and live your life free. Peace up, a town down.
