Constrained By Your Own Parameters

It’s easy to feel constrained by your own parameters. You look at your parents and the house in which you grew up and think, that’s it: These are the things that define my life, why bother to try and break out of them.

As I look at my life, today, I’m identifying my parameters. And wondering how to feel less constrained from them. The roles that I’ve picked out for myself: pastor, writer, friend, daughter, girlfriend are the ones that define, but what about the others? What about those ones that I don’t share with anyone but myself and sometimes my therapist?

How can I break those parameters? Because I think breaking out of them may be important.
