This post is going to be more of a rant, but at the same time, it may offer a nice bit of advice…
Don’t ever let anybody run your life for you. I don’t care who it is, you absolutely have to live life your own way. Of course, some guidelines are obviously okay (like ones that are set by your parents and/or guardians) but in general, do what you want to do, live how you want to live. Don’t fall to the feet of someone else, because one day that person won’t be around anymore, and then what are you going to do? Wait for the next guy who has a nice set of strings to hook onto your shoulders and move you whichever way he chooses? No, because that’d be stupid, and foolish. Besides, if you spend your entire life, or even just part of your life, following how someone else wants you to live, you’ll get so caught up in THEIR life, that you’ll miss part of your own!
You’ll begin to forget about your other friends, you know, the ones you had before you surrendered your life to someone else, and that will just end terribly–because one day, your “master” will be gone, and then who are you gonna cry to? You may be too old to cry to mommy and daddy, so that’s what FRIENDS are for. FRIENDS will always be there for you, no matter what. Relationships come and go.
Let this be a lesson to all that let temporary things get in the way of permanent ones.
