Know that I’m no sheep, I won’t just conform,
Simply because, I’m shown what’s the norm,
I have my own mind, I know who I am,
I’d rather disappoint, than partake in a sham.
I care not for keeping appearances up,
Won’t stay in a room, in which there is no love,
Friends may become foes, in the blink of an eye,
When told “here, put these blinkers on!”, I’ll ask you “why?”

Social circles can sometimes evolve into complicated hierarchies, which can lead to you occasionally feeling unwelcome, somewhere that you used to feel at home. Maybe it no longer has the same appeal to you, now that your priorities have shifted, or maybe you don’t want to be involved in an unsettling scenario that’s unraveling.
The beauty of it is though, that you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do, you are the Boss of your own life, who you choose to let in, and who you choose to keep at arms length.
Life is too short to appease those who don’t really care for your welfare, you are no less important than any other person (even royalty or heads of state), and anyone who makes you feel like you are, doesn’t know your true worth. Friendship is not a mere title, it is a feeling, just as love is.
I’m not saying you should wish harm on those who aren’t a good fit for your soul, you can still be civil, but if there’s somewhere else you’d rather be, or someone else you’d rather be spending time with (even if it’s merely enjoying your own company), then don’t pretend otherwise, forget the status quo, and do what makes you happy.
Love and Respect always,
