Because your own perspective of how things are, what decisions to make and of what is right and wrong should be overpowered by that of others who in turn have it overpowered by others who…
Because you ought to wonder all the time whether what you are say and so is in alignment with what others consider normal. And if it isn’t you ought to be quiet.

Because the serene, ideal picture of normal life never comes.
Because all the above somehow adds up to being free.
