    your workplace and tell you to finish the vegetables on your plate? Gosh- I mean, how old are you and how old am I? I may be younger but I am not your daughter and who are you to tell me what to eat? Not even my mother dares to force me to eat my brocolli. Some people make the...

    You Only Have One Life.

    I don't let people/rules run my life for me.  I make my own decisions regardless and do me 100% of the time.  We only get one chance to make life worth it, and if we aren't enjoying ourselves what's the point?  Society wants us to conform but some people are just...
