This is our life. We have to take ownership of it. Some of us give selflessly because it’s our purpose or it’s for a good cause. Good for those who are like that. Admirable.
But I cannot be the Stepford Wife with a gleaming smile and spotless facade. Living like I’m in fucking Pleasantville. I’m a slut just like the rest. I’m not afraid to admit that because that’s not my shame.
I have a lust for life and a desire to be a better version each day. Learning through new experiences and not by what the rest are doing. I don’t want to be Mr. Predictable, being forced to settle down when I know I’ve just begun.
I don’t even think I’m looking for a new relationship.
I just want to own myself. I want to be able to shop on my own and enjoy meals on my own.
