Doing what I please
May 28, 2007
The only explanation I ever need for doing what I want is: “I want to.”
The only explanation I ever need for not doing what I don’t want to do is: “I don’t want to.”
The people who love me will understand.
The people who do not will not.
I do not need to convince anyone of anything. Actually, I can’t convince people who want to control me of anything.
I state my preferences directly and openly.
Think of this for a moment. The people who oppose my decision are only stating their opinion, their preferences. Why is their opinion about my life more important than my opinion about my own?
I wouldn’t object if others did what they wanted to do. I might not like it or agree, but I recognize other people are free to live their lives any way they like. Just like me! It’s only fair.
I memorize these two explanations: “I want to” and “I don’t want to”.
I don’t need excuses to be myself.
