    All my life all I heard from family is 'We are

    only doing what we do for you is for your own good!' I never had any control over my money, my life, and that they always screwed any jobs I got, they always said it was for my own good... 'bullshit' I said, so that's why I left and cut them off for ever

    I Am Fed Up With Just That

    I eat mostly junk food. I don't shower or shave if I don't have to go to work. I'm generally unhealthy and obscene. And I'm enjoying myself.

    "It's For Your Own Good"

    Yeah, right..... Sometimes it's for my "own good" to make the mistake. Don't you think? So how about getting off your high horse & stop assuming you know anything about me or what's good for me? K, thanks!

    You Know, I Can Think For Myself...

    Sigh, I'm tired of having others assuming that I'm mentally incapable of making my own decisions. I'm twenty-two-years-old, an adult, who's more than capable of making my own decisions. I'm not going to do something just to appease someone else. No way. That's not how I roll.

    I'd never force my children to do things they

    don't want to. Maybe school isn't for everyone. Maybe it's their life and you shouldn't try to live vicariously through them. Tired of people telling me what I should want & what's going to be best for me. You aren't me. -_-
