New rules to tell the children

Offend people, try and offend as many as you can. See when you lose count, make it a game. Be deemed unacceptable, scandalous. Walk the line just outside societal mores.) Curse at will, whistle, spit don’t sit properly or upright, don’t smile (especially if you’re told to), don’t be polite or ladylike (unless that is what you want). Abandon people and ideas if they no longer serve you, be ruthless. You’re doing no one any favors and doing yourself irreparable harm if you play the martyr and stay in a stupid situation to be “good” one. No one will like or appreciate you for it. There will be no validation for killing your madness to keep the peace. Be mad, give in to that spark. Even if it leads you to a twisty road, trust me, the twisty roads are the best.
You don’t owe anyone respect, love or admiration just because they are older than you. You are just as worthy of all of these as anyone. Always remember love is not real unless it’s for a pet or maybe your own human child. Your brain will produce oxytocin for any person given the right parameters. Romantic love always blooms like that St. Vincent poem, “strewing flowers and babbling like an idiot”. Don’t give up anything for it. A few well-placed love songs and strong influx of oxytocin and you’ll fall in love with a door stop.
You are responsible for no one’s happiness but your own.
Remember this.
