Life After the Wedding

Contemplation of Life
Hmm... their little "mood" emoticons do not have the breadth of expression that my current mood requires...

I have come to the conclusion that, even if you're married, coexisting, somewhat co-reliant, etc., you generally must, within reason, live for yourself. Obviously, it is not reasonable to spend any money you want to if it is not somehow adherent to the current budget, or is simply unaffordable at present; but if you go through life letting others tell you what you can and cannot do, or if you allow others to continuously shoot down your ideas and dreams, you will never live your life to its full potential, and you will eventually grow old and look back with disappointment on your unlived existence... no one knows you and your personal capabilities or limitations better than you do, and if you let them believe that they are the resident expert on you, you will only set yourself up to fail.

I do not mean to ramble, but life baffles me... you're led to believe that you can be so close to a person as to want to marry them, and they should always believe in you and encourage you - you would never expect to have to fight them to let you believe in yourself. A rather sad statement on humanity, I must say...
