You don’t have to justify yourself to anyone about:
What you write.
What you draw.
What you do that brings you peace.
Who you sleep with (unless you’re married and it isn’t your spouse)
Who you love.
How you feel.
How much you weigh.
What you wear.
What you read.
What music you listen to.
What music you crank up and sing along to.
What grow in your garden.
What you put in your salad.
What necks you bite.
When you decide to just stay home.
What movies you like.
What movies you don’t like.
What books you love.
What weird food you like that nobody else really likes.
Why you named your child, dog, cat, lizard, rabbit, or chicken.
You don’t have to be someone you’re not.
You don’t have to justify yourself to anyone.
Stay safe. Don’t be a dick. Be kind. Stay curious. Turn up your favorite music. Grow way too many flowers. Hug your dog. Talk to your kids. Check in on those who are elderly, alone, or might need extra help. And kiss a Vampire – you’ll thank me for it later.
