behind the “I” in I.
When people say “I’m going to grab that last piece of cake,” or “I’m going to the bathroom” or “I’m going to be late again, don’t wait up on me,”
some of the responses might be “bitch, I wanted that cake,” or “I didn’t need to know that,” or “yup, yet again.”
but when people say “I am going to live my own life abiding by my own rules,”
people go jumping off cliffs, the world start cleaving itself in fours, hell freezes over, and in some rare circumstances, people start throwing their babies out of their windows.
Why are people so scared of people having their own opinion and living their own lives? What is it to them that they need to dominate someone else’s life?
Doesn’t the “I” in the “I do,” “I will,” and “I am” refer to the same person?
