We try so hard to live up to other people’s wants and expectations. Why should I have to bend to their rules instead of making and breaking my own? People always say that’s life, that’s just how it is, get used to it. Who fucking says? We make our own choices and we pride ourselves on freedom but when something happens we use excuses like that’s just the way it’s going to be. No. It doesn’t have to be. We’re giving the power of our choices to those around us who have selfish means and selfish habits and selfish motives. We were given choices to make them, not to accept what we don’t deserve or desire.
What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle age.
