Freedom comes wth a price

As exmormons, freedom comes with a price. We must make sure that the price for our freedom does not impinge on other people.

For example, we cannot expect to be able to drink alcohol and drive, nor must we expect out family to accept it with a laugh and an indulgent smile, should we decide to start taking drugs or to enjoy a so-called alternative lifestyle.

With freedom comes responsibility. We do not want to mess up the lives of our family members in a pursuit of a hedonistic lifestyle. Because life is very rarely "all about me."

And whilst we can "do exactly what we want" to paraphrase from Jurasic Park: "The question you should ask yourselves is not: "Can we do it. The question you should ask yourselves is Should we do it?"
