Thank you, Twinkle, for this valuable contribution to the discussion. You put your finger on a really crucial point in the statement that following directions is a lot easier than taking responsibility for your own life. Eventually we all must take responsibility for our own lives--if we are to live a life worth living--and those who start learning that as children have a crucial head start over those who first start to learn it when they leave home. The lucky thing, for us as a species, is that we are designed by nature to WANT to take responsibility for our own lives, regardless of our age. We WANT to do what's hard.
