I am so sick and tired of the way some boys view girls. Just because you are nice at me, doesn’t mean I will automatically fling myself at you. I have more self worth than that. Just because you listen to what I have to say and actually pay attention to my interests, doesn’t mean I will let you tell me your darkest secrets and expect mine in return, expect me to fall in love with you, expect me to write you poetry and take trains across country to visit you and sit in coffee shops with you and discuss our favourite books and the sadness of our misunderstood teenage lives. I expect more than to be treated like that. Don’t treat me like a concept; like a dream girl who can be your saviour, or can be saved. I am not a solution, or a problem. I don’t want to be saved by anyone other than myself. I am not a possession. I don’t want to tether myself to another human being before I have done all I want to do in life and there is so much I want to do. And just because you listen to my ambitions doesn’t mean you can influence them. Just because you ask me how my day was doesn’t mean I should think about you constantly, write your name over and over, imagine me and you. Don’t romanticise me. I don’t want to be adored or idolised or admired because I am a human and an individual and I make my own decisions. And I don’t belong to anybody.
