Amy Sedaris, a Chestism
(first submitted by OOC: 12.14.10, then again, today)
"They assume that I want a boyfriend, and yeah, that I'd probably like to get married and have a baby – but they're wrong."
Why do we love it, you ask? Because it speaks to the expectations of others, and how Amy acknowledges them and dismisses them – as not what she wants for her. To us, in a lot of ways, it's the essence of what we're hoping OOC helps you do for you…realize what you want, and what you don't…get closer to understanding the things that hate on your happy (and why they do) and the things that make you happier (and why), so you can spend more time on the happier than the hating.
Soooo…you ever find yourself confronting the expectations others have of what you should want, and thinking nope, they're wrong? You ever say anything to them? Tell us about the when, whos and whys. Yea, expectations can be such a buzzkill. #Discuss.
