Seriously, I also relate to your thoughts here on many levels. Thanks for thinking out loud.

The choices are still real and out there, we just choose to consider some things off-limits. Some choices are contrary to our sense of who we are, some are out-of-reach financially, some may be immoral.
I think that we aquire a mature set of values, what’s important in our lives, our priorities. To operate outside these self-imposed limits would do violence to who we are. We would probably not like ourselves and would feel guilt.
We come to the place where the freedoms of youth, those wide open vistas, are recognized as so many doors to so many prisons. One could say that a responsible, decent life is a prison, but it is far more free and spacious than many other life choices.

It seems at times that I am setting myself into a specific path that cannot be altered, and it can be kinda scary. But I think that you’re right. There is security in knowing that you have meaning; you are doing something. I have friends that are perpetual college dropouts (in and out of school, you know). I don’t envy them.
