A ‘life without restrictions’ is something which we all must have wished for at least once at some point in our lives. The thought itself is so tempting that you can have a life where you can do whatever you want to do and there is no one to stop you.
It might look like sleeping all day and partying all night with no constant reminders of reaching home early. Or it might be easily skipping the part where you have to work hard to cook a fresh meal and order your favorite dish instead. Having a life where you can spend your entire income on acquiring new clothes and new gadgets.
No matter how fun and easy, a life without restrictions might look like, you would not want to have this life for real.
“Things are not always as they seem, the first appearance deceives many”
Thus, only the idea of having such a life is intriguing but the reality may not be the same. A life without restrictions would be like a ‘body without a mind’, where we’ll keep on performing the actions for temporary pleasure without even giving a second thought to it.
As a result, we might end up not liking the consequences of our own actions.
A life without restrictions would be like a ‘life without a meaning’. This life is going to have no purpose as we are most likely to do things which seem easier for us. We would never want to get out of our comfort zone and try something new.
So, ‘nothing changes, if nothing changes’. Neither would we be interested in changing our approaches and nor would we be getting better results.
Disrupting the normal routine by taking a break for a few days is healthy but doing this repeatedly in a loop, such as not sleeping on time and not eating right can result in poor health.
Also, spending money without planning might become a reason for you to regret later. Therefore, it can be said that some restrictions are good.
Sometimes, “Restrictions result in new inventions”.
‘Just like the moon, your greatest magic will come in times of darkness when you have no choice but to trust your own power’.
It can be interpreted like, when there are multiple barriers and we feel there is no possible solution as we cannot trust anyone, we rely on ourselves and start seeking answers from within.
Sometimes, when we feel there is no way out, we are forced to think and make a new way. This results in creation. And this might become something which could be helpful to others in future.
When the vision is unclear and things start falling apart, we are left with no other option but to come up with a solution.
Thus, restrictions are necessary as they keep reminding that humans have unlimited potential and we are our only limit.
So, it would be correct to say that ‘life is good WITH restrictions’.
