I'm tired of refusing to give up.
I'm tired of being tired.
I'm tired of not being enough...good enough, pretty enough, fun enough, smart enough.
Lately I feel like I've almost had enough.
But I will not quit.
I will no longer play by someone elses' rules.
I will make my own.
My rules say it's ok to follow a dream.
My rules say it doesn't matter what I look like.
My rules say I'm not less of a woman because I don't care about fashion, or popularity, or celebrities.
I like my rules better.
So go ahead, keep your scores.
Judge me as you will.
Rant at me, shun me for not conforming.
Because I won't play with you any more.
I play by my own rules now.
