    The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. And in this current world, where everyone has an opinion and they are all as different as they can be, I think nothing is more necessary than rebellion. Whether it is in matters of religion, sexuality, work ethics, relationships etc … a little rebellion now and then is a good thing. You won’t always succeed, but at the very least, people will know where you stand and when they’re crossing boundaries. And it’s okay even if what you rebel for changes with time. It’s all part of defining yourself and finding your place in this world. And here’s the best thing….whatever rebellion you begin, at whatever age….you are not the first one to walk down that path. Learn from your predecessors.
    So to answer your question….yes….at 33, It is still rebellion. Buckle up. There’ll be more….

  2. An absolute red flag for me is someone who thinks their standards and opinions are the the best and the only true ones.

    An absolute red flag for me is someone who thinks their standards and opinions are the the best and the only true ones. It means there’s little to no room to accommodate any differences in thoughts between us and teamwork will be an issue.

    I think most red flags can be identified very early in relationships… except you don’t see it as a red flag at the time and people tend to ‘give it time’ to see if it is indeed a red flag or you’re overanalyzing. Which makes sense, but always puts us at a disadvantage because the more time you spend with someone, the more emotionally invested you get and the less likely you are to be objective.

    How to look out for signs of a red flag? I think Community is your best chance. Hang out with his friends and your friends and they’ll help you see them sooner…

    1. Affordable counselling – I know this is an unpopular opinion but hear me out. Statisticallly, over 50% of the perpetrators are husbands/boyfriends. I think individual counselling will reduce the number of unhinged people we have so that even when they get into relationships, they can better handle relationship stress. Marriage counselling is even better because it means they can get people to help them amicably solve their relationship problems in real time. Family counselling is best because what’s better than a family where kids grow up seeing healthy conflict resolution methods and everyone is heard? Furthermore, family is the building block of the community and I think functional healthy families is the ultimate solution. There’ll always be anomalies though. Can’t do much about those.

    2. Everything Else mentioned above (harsh punishment, strict laws, campaigns, availability os safe houses etc )
