i am me... why is that hard for people to understand? my "family", my "friends"... none of them care what i want out of this one life that i know exists... they only care about what is expected of me... what they think i should be doing.
i am always wrong, no matter what.
why can't they see that i tried my damndest for a long time to please them all, only to watch it come tumbling back down? how do i get them to understand that this is who i am, and what i want to be doing, and that they should just accept that i am who i am? is it so very wrong to want to be able to be me?
Got to do what makes YOU happy, not what makes THEM happy. Part of becoming you is putting away what makes your family happy. Standing up to them, in spite of their displeasure. Accepting their displeasure, and doing what is right for you, in spite of it.
