THE JOURNAL

Drawing Outside the Lines

Do you have a boyfriend?
Are you planning to go to college?
And do you like living at home?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These questions I am asked repeatedly, usually in the same conversation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At my age, it’s completely normal questions to be asked, but for me, my answers are nothing but off the track.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes this world put boxes around people, assuming them to go down the “expected road” of life. Moving out after high school, going to college and maybe having a “special someone” in your life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not here to say that any one of those are bad, yet I hope we don’t presume that everyone wants to do that.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ones I applaud are the ones who take the road which is right for them.

 

Don’t be afraid to color outside the lines…

So for several reasons, I don’t have a boyfriend. (And I’m not looking for one, thank you!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
College is not off the table, I really love what I do and so I like to say it’s on hold at the moment.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And yes, I still live at home and love it! At this time in life, it’s the best choice, but to be honest I’m not planning to live there forever.⠀⠀⠀
So to you, I say, don’t allow normalcy bombard your dreams, nor what you are called to do and be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don’t be afraid to color outside the lines…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nahh. We’re gonna make our own lines.
