    Default If someone tells you to do something, do you rebel?

    Hey Everyone,


    I was just curious, how much do you as an adult rebel?

    My whole life I've been told by teachers, kids, adults, family, strangers etc that I should draw for a living. Occasionally I think yes, why not. But then I don't. I swear, somewhere deep down I am rebelling. I honestly don't think I draw that well, thats not plugging for attention, I just don't feel I'm good enough. But I get comments a fair bit I swear I just auto pilot rebel.

    So what do you rebel on?

    I do with little things with DP all the time, for example- a typical conversation in our house:

    DP: Shouldn't you be studying tonight?
    Me: Leave me alone, I don't want to do homework, you're not my real mum!
    And I'll proceed to procrastinate and play video games for the rest of the night.

    It's such a stupid habit of mine!

    Does being too lazy to do what I'm told, count as rebelling?

    No one tells me to do anything but if anyone thought they could TELL me what to do, eff yeah I'll hold off on doing it! They aren't the boss of me.

    Oh I rebel against everything

    Society says one thing and there I go doing another.

    No wait, let me just clarify that I don't deliberately rebel. I just do my own thing whether others do it or not. I don't cave into society's expectations or that of those around me.

    But yes, I think I've always had a problem with authority, unless I like the person. I'm an Aries so that's my excuse

    I got the $hits with DF tonight because he came home from the gym and asked me why I was sitting on my bum when there was stuff to be done.
    We'd gotten home an hour ago from the kids birthday party, I'm pregnant and tired from chasing 3 year olds all day everyday and I had dinner on.
    I got up and threw what I was cooking in the sink and told him to cook for himself.
    Not one of my finer moments :/

    He did clean it up and cook his own dinner though lol.

    Sometimes. I hate being told I'm doing something "right" when it comes to my parenting, especially by PIL or my parents. For some reason I always wish I had done that thing differently just to annoy them. Maybe I'm just contrary though, rather than rebelling.

    This! Right down to being an Aries!

    I tend to do what ever I want regardless of what people say.
    I have on occasion done something I didnt want to just to prove a point to someone, but never anything major
