Societies Expectations

Have you got a husband/wife? Have you got children? Do you own your house or rent?

It is crazy how you get perceived as ‘un-normal’ if you have passed a certain age and are not married, if you have passed a certain stage in life and don’t have children or if you live in a rented house and not brought. This isn’t necessarily our faults as we have always been shown since day one that this is the ‘correct’ and ‘normal’ way of life, in stories, in newspapers, in films. If since being a child that is all you have been shown/taught how would you know any different? I won’t allow this to be for myself, I won’t live under any time pressure and I won’t follow the ‘normal’ way of living if that isn’t what feels right for me.

Remember, you were not brought into this world to do what others perceive as ‘normal’ or ‘correct,’ you were not brought into this world to do things by a certain time in your life, however, YOU were brought into this world to make a life that suits you, to make decisions based on what you want and to fill each day with whatever makes you happy. F*** expectations or judgement and just do YOU.
