Breaking Free

Ever felt smothered by everyone else's idea of what your life should be like? Have you ever just wanted to say "Stop! It's my life!" to those closest to you? We all have, haven't we? I bet you were too afraid to do it though. So you kept your mouth shut, and did exactly what you always told yourself you would never do: you followed the rules set by people who don't really know you, and let THEM control your life. But what could happen if you finally just said no? If you decided to follow your own dream? Would something amazing happen? Would you fall in love? Would you find what you've been looking for your whole life? What could happen if you just...broke free?

2. Goodbye Note

Mom and Dad,

By the time you read this, I'll already be gone. I won't tell you where, and I hope you don't come looking for me.

This isn't the life for me, you both know that. I don't belong in this world, I've never fit in. I have dreams, dreams that I have to chase. My destiny is just that: MY destiny. I love you both, but you have a future in mind for me and not once have either of you ever asked if it was that future I wanted.

Well it's not.

I'm leaving, but I'll be in touch. Probably not soon. Maybe a month, maybe six months, maybe a year, I'm not sure. But I will be in touch.

I know the two of you just want me to be happy, and you think that taking over the company one day and marrying Alan is what will do that. But that's what will make YOU happy. Not me.

I choose my happiness. I choose my future. I make my own destiny.

I love you both, I truly do. I'll always be your baby. But it's time for me to find myself.

Love always,

Belle.
