DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A RANT! THIS IS ME EXPRESSING HOW I FEEL — IT MIGHT SOUND LIKE I’M A LITTLE BOTHERED AND THAT’S BECAUSE I AM!
What really gets under my skin, as well as most people I believe, is when people question why I am doing something or try so hard to understand like I did it for them. Nothing irritates me more!
If I say that I’m gonna do one thing, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do! Don’t get smart because it’s not what you want me to do, don’t get mad because you don’t understand why I want to do that and DON’T try and bully me into doing what it is that you want me to do!
Anything I do is something I chose to do on my own. If it didn’t ask for your help, your opinion, how you felt about it, then I probably didn’t want it or need it.
I’m pretty sure that I am capable of making and even handling the consequences of my actions. If I chose to do one thing or didn’t choose to do another, it’s because I had good reason. I don’t have to explain anything to you if I don’t want to and if you don’t understand my reasoning, that’s not my problem and it’s probably best you don’t understand.
But don’t misunderstand me, genuine concern, advice, wisdom and/or Holy correction is one thing, but if you’re just asking out of something other than to insult me or to make me feel like I can’t handle my own situations, then that is something completely different. First off, I’m not here to please people so whatever you say makes me no nevermind. At the end of the day, the only one I have to answer to is God. What I do has to be pleasing to Him, NOT man.
Most of the time, the decision I make won’t even affect you. It’s so small and it has nothing to do with you. In my short 21 years, I can say that I have garnered the ability to make decisions and to think about them clearly both BEFORE & AFTER I make them. I am an adult, NOT A CHILD — so how does that give you the right to question what I’m doing? EXACTLY.
If I need help, I will ask for it. It might take me a little while to ask, but it will happen. I am not afraid to do so.
