19. I pay my own way
I don't ask or expect anything from anybody. I'm sometimes happily surprised but never disappointed with this approach.

I am not going to let somebody else dictate what I should be or do based on their priorities and expectations. Fuck 'em This is my life and it is my choice how to live it. My priorities and my definition of success are my own.

Nor am I going to allow someone else to define my value and worth. They don't know my goals, where I come from, what I am fully capable of or where I am going. Their judgment has only the value I permit it to have.

Any effort to judge is a reflection of the one making the assesment more than the one being judged INHO. As they say everybody needs somebody to look down on.

I did not see the thread you reference in GD. Just as well. I likely would have to add folks to my ignore list and hide the thread. I refuse to host judgmental crap.
