Today my grandma forced me out into the world to get a job. She kept saying "I'm not forcing you" as she pushed me out the door.
I am an actress and I have some personal issues with my self image. It has taken me awhile to try to be myself, and I am still working at it.
On the car ride to the place where my interview was she precedes to tell me "You are to much of an independant thinker. Don't you know the saying when in Rome do as the Romans do? "
So I say "I'm not going to sacrifice who I am to fit in with others."
So she says " You should try to be more normal. You can't just be eccentric and unique and not care what others think of you."
So I retort " I have had a lot of trouble trying to find out who I am and I am not about to change myself so others find me agreeable. "
So she says in all seriousness "You are going to end up living in a box"
I seriously almost peed my pants.
This was all triggered by my socks being to different lengths.
I try to be nice to her. But somehting about her just gets me mad.
