“You do not have to be good, you do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”

Wild Geese, Mary Oliver

I think there is far too much pressure on people to act a certain way and to be a certain person, purely to meet other people’s expectations. I often wonder what is so wrong with having your own expectations for yourself, regardless of how they are percieved by others. People need to start asking ‘so what if I enjoy this?’ or ‘why do you care if I do that?’, because at the end of the day, if they do have a problem with you doing what you’re doing, then perhaps their opinions shouldn’t be so important to you anyway. (just a small rant, sorry!)
