You can live for someone else. Other than yourself. You can live a hedonistic existence. You can live a balance of the two. Sharing yourself and your thoughts, but maintaining YOU as the major factor.

Personally, I prefer NOT to live my life to please others. The status quo. Living up to expectations and norms. I’m a bit left of center, but not totally gone.

Listening to Alanis Morrissette and totally enjoying the vibe. This songwriter/singer really speaks to me.

“That I Would Be Good”

that I would be good even if I did nothing
that I would be good even if I got the thumbs down
that I would be good if I got and stayed sick
that I would be good even if I gained ten pounds

that I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
that I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
that I would be great if I was no longer queen
that I would be grand if I was not all knowing

that I would be loved even when I numb myself
that I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
that I would be loved even when I was fuming
that I would be good even if I was clingy

that I would be good even if I lost sanity
that I would be good
whether with or without you
