    Your Way Never Works

    So far in my life everything I do, I do wrong. I don't feel right, I don't act right, I don't socialize enough, I don't act "normal." .. Everyone says to do something some way. I try it, they say I don't. My parents tell me I don't listen. I listen in my way. My way changes all...

    Who Do They Think I Am?

    Was I born to be a slave? Was I born to follow everyone's orders who ask me to? I have a perfectly good body. Not crippled, healthy weight, healthy organs and over all healthy body. How am I suppose to say no to someone who doesn't have what I have?

    Let Me Figure It Out!

    Even if I don't know what the right thing is, even if I know I'm doing the wrong thing, I need to figure it out for my self. How can I learn from my mistakes if no one is willing to let me make them?

    I'm stubborn. I don't like conforming all the

    time and molding myself to fit others' standards. Sometimes i want to set my own standards for myself.

    So Sick of It.

    I'm so sick of it. I really am. People always telling me what, in their opinion, I should be doing. How I should be feeling. What I should say. What I should think. Do this. Do that. Something they did worked for them, and there-fore, it will work for me also. If it dosn't, it's...

    I hate more or less the condescending attitude that comes along with it more than anything. However I don't listen to if I feel forced too. So it doesn't really work on me.
