Welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s card comes to us from the Life category, and the card states “Do you tell yourself that you can’t do something? What is it and why?”
So, here’s the thing, the easy way to answer this question would be to say “Well, I tell myself that I can’t commit murder, and I tell myself that because that’s wrong.” but I’m not sure that’s what the question is really asking.
What the question is more likely asking is whether or not there’s something that you tell yourself that you can’t do that’s more mundane, and more related to career or life instead of something more criminal or immoral.
And in that case, I can’t really say whether or not there is something that I consciously tell myself that I cannot do. While some people would say that recent discussions have seen me tell myself that I cannot affect political change and that would be the answer.
And while some recent discussions on social media that I’ve had would lend themselves to such an answer, I feel that the bigger issue there is that my chosen method of affecting change requires licenses in order to start. I cannot start my legal career without a license from the California State Bar saying that I am allowed to practice law. Every person has their own way of fighting for what they believe is right. If everyone did the same thing, then there would be too many cooks in the kitchen.
So there we go, maybe not a great answer to the question, but the best one that I have.
