Think of the last time you broke a rule( a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned ,or did things turn out for the best?
The last time I broke the rule was a couple of days ago. We were given a question in our online course, where we were told to give brief answers, no more than 100 words, at first I did write a short answer, but my online friend asked me to write the longer one I had talked about. I made my excuses why I could not, some one else already wrote almost the same as I was thinking about.
When I got a second request, this time it was from the facilitator to write the longer answer, I felt it was safe to do it. I broke the rule but when the person who made the rule wanted me to write the longer answer, I felt confident to break it.
