So, I’m sitting here, in my spare room of my awesome house, getting some feelings down on paper. Well, not paper, but on my computer.
Isn’t life bullshit sometimes? The crap we put ourselves through for what? To get material possessions right? Go to school, get the degree, fight our way up the ranks to a high paying job, just to get shit we won’t take with us when our time is up. Interesting isn’t it?
But, if you’re like me, we might sacrafice some shit along the way. Stuff like our opinion, our right to be happy no matter what people think, to be stupid every once and awhile. Get where I’m going? We change to make other people happy so they like us so we can get more stuff!
Honestly, it’s BULLSHIT!
True happiness happens when you are YOU! The best fucking YOU that YOU can be! Remember when we were little shits on the playground? Telling everyone exactly what we thought without a single filter! And, we were happy little fucks!
Then, somewhere along the journey to “happiness” we started caring more about what other people thought than what WE thought. Sad really. But what ultimately happens? We grow old, lose our hair and teeth, and wind up being cranky old fucks anyway!
So, I ask you, what not just be honest now? Live OUR life now? What’s the worst that’s gonna happen? Oh, someone is going to get offended? Hurt? Not like us cuz we don’t fit into THEIR expectations? Fuck that!
Yes, I’m a victim of this crap too! I care WAYYYYY too much about making people happy that I make myself more miserable than Octomom at an abortion rally!
I’m making a proclamation – would you like to join me? From this day forward, I’m going to compromise less for what other people want in favor for what I (ME ME ME) wants! Not that I’m going to be a selfish dick, but be ME! And, if the people in my life don’t like me, I need to get different people.
In the end, as we take our last breath, do we want to look back and say “Well, that was a waste of time!” OR, “Wow, what a KICKASS ride, I can’t wait to see what’s next!”
Ultimately, and don’t give me any shit about this one, it’s OUR choice!
QUESTION: What are you going to choose to do? Live YOUR life or someone else’s expectations for what YOU should be doing?
I know my answer :)
Until next time, I wish you the most KICKASS life YOU choose to live :)
