FOMO or YOLO?

They told me to go home.
Be quiet.
Stop whining.
Make money.
Wake up.
Put it to bed.
Stop hurting.
Graduate.
Fix crazy.
Be loved.
Get married.
Buy a house.
Get well.
Don’t smoke, eat, drink, do drugs, have sex.
Be realistic.
Not idealistic.
But they didn’t show me how to help myself or others.
At 16, I wanted to travel the world helping others, working hard, meeting people.
Loving people.
They told me to stop being myself.
I finally said, “No.”
