As much as I love talking, one thing I hate the most is justifying. When you are an honest person with off beat choices, people expect you to explain every move of yours. I have hated explaining myself since I was a child. I'm a realist and being very practical, I tend to do things in a different way. Most people consider me foolish for doing this but my heart and mind have enough reason to do so. If it works, they ask me to justify the path I chose. If it doesn't work, they ask the same thing. Why? I am a normal human being with a sensible head on my shoulders. I have the capacity to make decisions and stand by it. If others doubt it, then I think they need to question themselves as to why they doubt it instead of asking me to justify it.
My parents don't ask me anything. They never demanded any explanations when I got home late after college or work. They trusted me and let me be. But I have seen ample cases where in one is expected to justify every move of theirs. Some of my friends are like this as well. If I tell them I can't meet them, they expect me to give them the whole story and prove it to them that I actually cannot meet them. How hard is it to understand that I might have other plans. Some people expect me to explain my dressing sense to them. Yeah, I'm not kidding. Some wanted to know why I'm dressed in skinny jeans most of the time and demanded a justification for choosing to wear them!
Even while I was dating, a few men have asked me to justify everything I do. Why I meet certain people, why don't I meet certain people, why did I not call them at the specified time and all that jazz. Needless to say those relationships were very short lived. I absolutely hate it when people constantly ask me about my writing. At one point of time, almost everything that I wrote on my blog demanded a justification and for no reason. If I wrote a melancholic poem, people used to ask me what's going on. If I wrote a post about somebody, every body else apart from the concerned person would call me up asking me why I wrote that and if it is about them. Talk about taking guilty consciousness to a whole new level!
I hate being questioned for my choices. Be it in fashion, books, writing, food or men. It's my life and I have the right to make my own choices. I don't ask you for justification, so please do return the favor.
