Roos Wouters’ father is a sociologist who taught her never to stop asking why.
Why do we do what we do?
Why did we start with it in the first place?
Why are we still doing it today?
And is the way in which we do it still the best possible way?
Her mother is a folk’s woman who taught her always to question authority.
If she answered that she did something because everybody else did it, or because someone told her so, she got furious and yelled at her: ‘Because lots of people followed Hitler did not make him right.’
Think for yourself and never accept the answer “because I tell you to.”
Always ask yourself: ‘Who are you?
What makes you so special that you get to tell me what to do.’
You probably can imagine that her school period was hell and she got fired from lots of different jobs.
The first part of her life, she wasn’t very grateful for her parents’ upbringing.
But later on she did notice that the way she sees things …
… was a gift.
Some people are able to think
out of the box.
She doesn’t even
see a box …
and that makes her see things afresh.
