Why You Don’t Have To Explain Yourself

Do you ever feel sick of having to explain yourself? Someone’s always got to ask why. Why can’t you go? Why can’t you afford it? Or “I just don’t understand…” and starts to add their own version of things up. The end of today has been one of those days where I just feel so fed up. Everyone sees a smiley face. Sometimes I feel like no one understands me. There are so many questions being asked that bug the life out of me. So here’s some thoughts about it all.

You have the right to make your decisions

The constant wonder of someone questioning your decisions. But they don’t need to be questioned. We all have own goals to pursue and ways of achieving them. Stop asking why or saying I don’t understand why you can’t just… It’s driving me insane. In time, people will see that why it was better to be so patient. And they will see just how amazing something can be when you stick to your guts.

It bugs me when someone judges or questions you just because you’re not doing what they would want to do. You hear so many people say, well if I was you or, I’ve never known you to like/not like…

Well guess what, I’m me! Thanks for telling me your thoughts but I think I do a better job of being myself than anybody else. If you can’t accept that I don’t/do want to do something, that’s your problem. Please don’t expressing your confusion or criticism with me. 

You don’t have to justify everything 

I wish people could leave us to it. Stop making it your business to find out what I’m spending my money on. What does it really matter to you? Notice how you keep telling me your business but I never ask about yours because I honestly don’t make it any concern of mine. I’m sick of having other peoples’ problems on my mind. Hearing stories I don’t need to be told about frustrates me, especially when I’ve said before that I’m not interested.

I just feel so fed up recently even though I have good things happening around me. I have a roof over my head. I’m not starved; nor am I unwell. The doctor does want me to relax as my blood pressure has been high again. But as many of you will be aware, that’s exactly why I’m writing this post. Blogging is my therapeutic calming cure. It releases all of my thoughts and hey, it produces a new blog post for you all to read.

Wanting time alone is fine

What I’m trying to tell you when times get like this is, keep your head up. It’s so important to do your own thing. Of all the people in the world, there has to be some of us that believe in doing our own thing. The type of people that want to do something for themselves, as selfish as it may seem to others, is something I totally get. If you don’t then that’s fair enough.

  1. Thank you for reading this post. And thank you for taking in what I’ve said and being able to understand the meaning behind it. You’re right, nobody should have to live to please others 🙂

  2. No one knows you better than yourself. You have the right to be yourself. If you stay yourself it feels better when you achieve your goals. So keep being yourself.

    1. Thank you so much for taking this in and being able to understand. You’re right, we do have a right to be ourselves. I’m glad you believe that being yourself is the right way to be 🙂
