At what age do you start to live for yourself?
Stop pleasing the people around you
Stop filtering what you want to say
Stop living your life for others.
It sounds a lot easier than it is
Especially when you are the product of immigration.
The burden of wanting to pay it forward
And live this life not only for you
But for your parents
That sacrificed more than they will ever admit
To give you the opportunity for a decent life.
The guilt of not wanting to be selfish
But also break free and do what feels right
It weighs you down.
So tell me, at what age do you start to live for yourself?
