I always did what I liked. Atleast, this is what I believed. I was so wrong. After a lot of introspection I realised my choices were not really mine. They were infected by the environment around which impaired my ability to choose wisely. The feeling of being left out and fulfilling the norms of society weighed heavily on the choices I made. It was not me but they who decided what I was supposed to do. Not anymore. I may lose them but it’s a small price to find myself.
