Fuck’um

When someone close to you says you should think yourself lucky…

…you are getting a wage…

…you’ve got a steady job…

…there are others worse off…

…pretending they love you when they come out with that,  then it’s time to grit teeth because that is not really love, that is control.  Condescension keeping you down and holding you back and setting you up for a lifetime of regret, resentment, and underachievement.  All affected by them.

Now,  I am still reeling from that – not just a boyhood of being spoken down to and being told what to do, of being looked upon with disapproval for having ideas of my own – but recent encounter with that shitty dynamic when once more, and so offensively, seeing as I am 42 years old, for Pete’s sake! I felt obliged to contend for my freedom from people upon which I am now no longer dependent – people who, undoubtedly, think they know best, think they know what I want, think their idea of “enough” enough for me!

What makes them think that they know my limits, what makes me happy?

Fuck’um, I’ll decide these things for myself, thank you very much.
