    "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!

    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

    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 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.
