Once you discover your Must, your brain’s most primal, protective center gets alarmed, Elle says. The riot gear is called forth. Defense mechanisms go up. Because choosing Must raises very real questions.

WE explore the origins of Shoulds, which are put on us from the moment we are born, as we have to grow up under some else’s wing. Eventually, as we grow up, we get to decide how we feel about them – the Shoulds from parents and an inherited worldview from the community, culture and the specific time in which we were born. We become our own person, find our voice, convictions and challenge and shed the Shoulds that no longer serve our evolving beliefs.
One of the main messages of the book is this: “There are two paths in life: Should and Must. We arrive at this crossroads over and over again. And every day, we get to choose.”
