When are you going to be good at math?
Why are you so quiet?
Why are you the way that you are?
Did you know that you’re still the same and changing?
It doesn’t matter
Why aren’t you more confident?
What do you have to be insecure about?
You’re such a nice girl!
Therefore, you must be nice all the time
Even when you’re disrespected and put down
When are you going to have your first date?
Your first kiss?
Your first relationship?
When are you going to lose your virginity?
When the time is right and I’m ready
Since you’re already *insert age here*,
What do you want to do with your life?
When are you going to get your driver’s license?
When are you going to graduate?
When are you going to get married?
When are you going to have kids?
Please leave me alone
Why won’t you tell every person
Inside and outside of your life
Every single detail of your personal life?
When will you stop being depressed?
When will you stop being anxious?
You don’t need to know everything about me
To care about me
Mental health is real
For the most part, I’m happy, healthy, and alive
My love and body are my prerogative
Don’t let anyone make you feel less than
For being human
On your own timeline and at your own pace
The human race is not a race
