Until a few months ago, I was frequently getting texts like these from a few people. Now that I cut/reduced contact with them, I don't find myself constantly thinking that I have to do something because someone else told me to.

To some, above might look like getting normal pieces of advice from friends and relatives, to me in most cases it always felt like I'm depending on someone else's approval over my ideas and actions. It feels pretty awesome to finally be the only person to judge things I do even before I begin doing them.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.
