I Pledge Allegiance To Myself...

I have to be truthful with myself in order to love myself. I didn’t want to move back to Detroit. I love Detroit. Detroit will always be home. But I didn’t want to come back. Not under the terms I did. I admit I didn’t make the best financial decisions while in NY and things were going down at home, but when things got rough why didn’t I just tough it out like I did the last 9 1/2 years? The crap I’m doing now (i.e. shitty non-media job) I could’ve been doing in NY and I’d been much happier. Nevertheless I’m in Detroit. I’m not wallowing in sorry or anything, just being honest with myself so I can grow. And I’ve learned my lesson, to never make this mistake decision again.

“Sometimes you gotta do things you don’t want to do.” Why?

Why are we taught to accept things that don't make you happy. Why don't people add the caveat "until you can do what you want to?
