I Don't Have to Explain Myself to Anyone

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 243 People

    You are who you are!!

    You don't owe anyone an explanation for the thinks you do. ESPECIALLY if it doesn't affect anybody. As long as you understand why you are doing what you're doing it doesn't matter why. Don't explain to your best friend, your mom, dad, aunt, uncle, cousin, teacher, pastor...

    Unless I Want to That Is

    If you don't understand me... just ask.  I don't mind explaining but whatever you do...don't assume and don't PLEASE don't try to make me defend my actions!  If you ask me nicely I will probably explain to the best of my ability.  But don't think for a second...

    My Choice

    I don't have to justify why I lead the life I do, I should be left to do as I please. BUT I will always appreciate good hearted advice, after all I am only a kid.

    Not Anymore

    Oh yes, there was a time when I would offer up all kinds of information that I really had no obligation to anyone to do so. I think in part my marriages were doomed to fail because of the contract feel that goes with getting married legally. I don't sign my life to any...

    Think Again.

    there are very few people in this world that i feel i have to explain myself to and people on the net, for the most part, are at the bottom of the list. i'm an adult, i pay my own bills and take care of myself with little or no help from anyone else. now, if anyone wants to help...

    But I Do..........repeatedly

    I can't seem to help myself. If I feel that anyone in anyway is disappointed in something I have said or done. Well, I either backpetal really fast so as not to cause undue damage, try to explain myself to them, or just agree that I was out of line & apologize.... I hate that...

    I Owe Them Nothing

    I used to feel like I had to justify myself to everyone. If I wanted to be left alone, I felt like I had to explain why. If I didn't want to go do something I was invited to go do, I felt like I had to explain why. Even my feelings. If I felt a certain way about something, I felt...

    Weaving

    This is perfectly true. I don't need to explain myself to anyone. Even if I would nourish that ambition I would have a hard time because it implicates a knowledge I may not have. All my deeds are complex in the processes that precede them. All my motivations are interwoven and...

    My Hubby Seems to Think I Should

    In order to keep confusion down. For instance, the other day, his step-niece came over and was trying to call her dad on the phone. She asked me what his number was but I said I didn't know. So, the situation is that his step-niece likes to awkwardly stare at people or off into...

    So What..

    So what if I am not like you...So what if I see things different. Who and what I am is nothing to do with you. The knowledge I keep hidden, the secrets I hold, they set me apart, and I know this. I have faced pain, I have been saddened, and I have been changed by this world...

    Except - I Want to

    Not everyone, I just want to explain the way I feel, what I need, and who I am to one special person. Will I ever be able to do that? I don't think so. I know that people can not read your mind - but sometimes I wish they could :)

    I Don't....

    I don't have to explain myself to anyone, if you don't like what you see, than leave. I am so sick of it all. I am sick of having to explain everything about myself. I am sick of it all. I am just not going to do it anymore BroknWings

    But Yet..

    Here I am again, feeling the need to explain myself. I guess I'm on the site because it offers more outside perspective if people feel strongly enough to comment on any stories or experiences. I guess its another way of just putting it all out there and people can get involved as...
