keyboard with a key which says the word options on it

Rather than formulate rules by which to live your life, describe the options you have instead.

Unfortunate thing about rules is that if you break one or can’t follow it, you tend to beat yourself up. You judge others who don’t conform to such a rigid view of the world.

Great thing about options is you’ll have multiple ways to react to an environment. If one way doesn’t work, you can try another.
