I am not a bad person.
I am not this monster that you think up of me in your head.
I am not a failure because I didn’t fall into your footsteps.
What I have become is more that I have ever wished for myself.
The person I am now makes me proud.
Even if you are disgusted.
Your opinion means nothing to me.
You don’t have to live with me.
I live with myself every single day of the week.
I am not going to be what you wanted me to be so I can impress you four times a year when I see you.
Don’t come to my shows.
Don’t look at my art.
Don’t hear my stories.
It would just reiterate your thoughts of me.
Just stay on your side.
And I’ll stay on mine.
