** The first two books in my six part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list
Today’s Question : What do you owe yourself?
This is a strange question to me and I’m not even quite sure how to interpret it or how to approach coming up with an answer. What do any of us owe ourselves? I suppose the best answer, cliche or not, is self-honesty. Be who we are. Like what we like. Love who we love. Accept ourselves for exactly who we are, and don’t tolerate people in our lives who don’t accept us.
It’s not actually all that difficult for me to do that, at least not now, but I’ve noticed for others it’s a very big struggle. Some people feel overly obligated to please others, most often their families, or they’re scared of how people will react if they reveal something about themselves. Maybe it’s my age, maybe it’s all the crap that I’ve been through in my life, but I can honestly say that no matter who you are, family included, if you don’t like something about me, you can either suck it up, buttercup, or you can peace out of my life. Life is too damned short to hide yourself, or to worry about the reactions of others.
