Who are you?

Have you ever been asked that question? Who are you? Who are you? What are you supposed to say? How can you answer a question like that? When every single day you are getting judged and assumptions are made about you, you are constantly trying to change yourself to fit in with how society things you should be.
So go on, try and honestly answer my question. Who are you?



You call me a waste of space.
You don’t think very highly of my ambitions.
You don’t want me to become an actor because it’s ‘not a secure profession’.
You don’t want me to become a doctor because it would mean I was ‘over worked and under paid’
You don’t want me to become a HR (Human resources) worker because it’s ‘horrible having to make those kinds of choices’.
I have something to say to you.
Let me make my own mistakes.
Let me do what I want to do.
Let me be happy.
Because I have chosen this career path because that is what I want to do.
I refuse to be one of those people on the tube in the mornings driving to a boring office job spending my day with people I hate and wanting to kill myself each day just to make you happy.
I will do what I want to do.
I know you want to best for me but I want what’s best for me as well.
So let me try these things.
Let me do what I want to do for a change.
And not what you think I should do.
I may be a waste of space.
But until I day I will just keep wasting this space.
Because I’m not about to give up on something I love on your say so.
