I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead, they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't.

People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.

~Marilyn Monroe

I guess there comes a point in life when we realize who used to matter, who still matters, and who never will. And for people who choose to dislike me out of their own judgmental shells, then what is left for me to say and do, except to embrace the future without superficial people like that?

Remember - if you did not hear it from me, then do not imagine things with your small mind and spread it with your big mouth.

That said, I am thankful that life has been kind despite its imperfections. And I will never stop being thankful because gratitude is mandatory - we can never bring anything to us unless we are grateful for what we have. 

I just want to be wonderful for the people who love me.
