We need to learn how to recognize such word/concept combination signs/flags of danger if we are to avoid entrapment in their dangerous ways of thinking, feeling and having habitual attitudes. Whenever the word "should" is combined (with or without the word "not") with such words as: "feel", "want", "desire", "emotion", "fear", "perceive", "experience", "expect" or "regret" --- the combination is a sign/flag of potential danger. Injunctions that one should (or should not) be oneself and know oneself as a unique being are hints of conditional acceptance and threats of conditional rejection; and so are actions which generate estrangement, alienation, dis-trust, resentment, negative feelings, fear, anger, and occasions for violence. In self defense there are moves toward deception, misleading behaviors, dishonesty and lying; all of which generate personal and communal disintegration. If one cannot be honest about how one feels, wants, desires, emotes, fears, perceives, experiences, expects, or regrets as a unique being---then one is estranged, alienated, distrustful, resentful, feeling negative, fearful, angered and primed for violence of one form or another. It is best to seek and create ways to think and talk about our unique feelings, wants, desires, emotions, fears, perceptions, experiences, expectations and regrets --- which do not combine the word "should" (with or without the word "not") with words/concepts which point to aspects of our being ourselves openly, honestly, and with personal and communal integrity. Such injunctions are not helpful. By seeking to avoid such un-helpful injunctions we may learn how to be uniquely ourselves, whole and healthy with both personal and communal integrity.
