A thought of discussing the arbitrary control is interesting, how often we think about this.. grew up under that label and when label changed same thing has a different meaning… most of the time we swing between right and wrong. but there is a freedom when we open channel for discussion and communication.. then there is no right or wrong there is space and understanding..
