I know I’m idealistic, and maybe a little selfish, but I don’t think I’m unreasonable.
I want the things I deserve:
I want people to be truthful, and to give me what I’m owed.
I want to be respected, and to respect myself through the choices I make and people I meet.
I want a chance to prove that I knew what was right, or find out I was mistaken. But I want to learn a lesson either way.
I don’t want to feel stupid, just because I have ideals and want to live them out, even briefly.
