Life+Stuff: You don’t have to
Whatever it is that you think you have to do, you don’t have to. It’s that simple. Don’t want to get married, have babies, go to work, wear a suit, pay tax, be a good citizen? Don’t do it. You don’t have to.
There isn’t much that you absolutely have to do.
There will be consequences, no matter what you do, or don’t do.
I always thought that I would grow up, get a degree, get a job, get married, buy a house, have some babies and that would be it. But you know what? It’s not happening that way.
It’s taken me a long time to realise that you don’t have to do any of that stuff. It’s much scarier to consider the vast possibilities. I can live in a rented house in the south of France. I can own an alpaca. I can go blonde, become a stripper and get a tattoo of a pin-up girl on my arm.
I can do whatever I want. How exciting is that?!
What have you always wanted to do? What’s stopping you?
