I Don't Have To...

follow the herd.

impress people.

fix everything.

tolerate fools.

get frustrated.

feel obligated. 
explain myself.

listen to lies.

keep everything.

pretend to like someone.

seek approval.

always say yes.

wait for the perfect time. 
agree with everyone.

offer excuses.

be perfect. 
act my age.

    ...if I don't want to.

I'm just trying to be me. I didn't ask for anyone's opinion.

Don't put the key to your happiness 
in someone else's pocket.” - Unknown
