My condolences to the people who expect differently from me, but I will not apologize for who I am. There is only one of me in the world, and I take pride in that fact. I don’t need your approval, so if you feel the need to project your nonsense on me, don’t be surprised if I cut the conversation and remind you that I don’t need your validation.
If you can’t respect me, there is no place for you in my life. I’m tired of compromising myself for the people around me. That chapter of my life has closed. If you don’t like the person I’m becoming, please exit the stage.
