Have we lost our teenager?

There always is a choice. Or there are excuses. And we are that same shitty society. We either contribute positively everyday or we find reasons to blame others and victimise ourselves.

How do you ACCEPT & ALLOW?

We have to ACCEPT there are FARTS.
We are all capable of it. All of us do it too.
Farts STINK.
But in order for a fart to stink, it must HAPPEN.
In order for it to happen, we must ALLOW it. We must LET GO.

Feminism, schizophrenia and incapacity

Off late, I have had many ‘friends’ correcting me all too often. Often from a place where they think I should do something because I don’t know anything about it. An assumption to the lack of my knowledge about something.
I’ve also been told how I should do something and how I shouldn’t do something. Or what I should say and what I shouldn’t say.
Or what I should attend or what I shouldn’t.

I can safely say that everyone seems to always think they know better than the ‘schizophrenic’. You don’t even know what is happening in your life needless to say the solutions for it. What makes you think you can tell me what to do?
