There are some things that our upbringing had trained us to think are illegal or wrong. Most of the time, they are illegal, but sometimes they just feel illegal.

Sometimes their legality depends on where you are, like turning right when the stoplight is red. Perfectly legal in some areas, but prohibited in others.


Reddit user u/stillchill123 asked:

"What is something perfectly legal that feels illegal?"

Walking through "nothing to declare" at the airport and having a nagging concern that just maybe you managed to pack a handgun, several tonnes of pest infested fruit and two thousand cigarettes over the tobacco limit.

Filling out government forms. I answer honestly, but constantly feel like I'm going to misinterpret a question and somehow commit some manner of bureaucratic felony.

We aren't perfect. There's plenty of things in our pasts that we look back and cringe at.

That being said, sometimes those cringe moments go far past cringe. Sometimes they get to the point of no return awfulness because that's where our human nature took us in this moment.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.
