Night thoughts #9

1:47 a.m.

Why do we always have to justify ourselves for the things we do or believe in? I mean, whenever we don’t play along or think alike we get asked why.

“Why are you eating cornflakes with yogurt?”

“Why are you cooking pasta so early?”

“Why are you going to that city? You should go to this one instead.”

“Why are you not going out today?”

“Why are you wearing your socks like this?”

I don’t know what makes people think that they need a justification for everything that other people do. Also I don’t get why people assume that I care about their opinion when talking about my life. It’s not that I don’t care at all but why do I need someone’s opinion about what the best, I don’t know, Japanese take away is, when I’m currently happy with what I’m eating at the moment?

I gave up on New Years resolutions cause people rarely stick to those. However, I know that I don’t want to be like that anymore. I’m tired of having to justify myself for every life choice I make. So next time I get asked about why I chose to have a specific hair color I should reply: “I don’t know, random stranger; who I literally just met and will probably never see again; why is yours gray?”
